Each year, the beloved holiday experience welcomes nearly 70,000 visitors and has helped raise more than $13 million for RMHD since its original run in 1987.

One-of-a-kind, personalized railcars are currently on sale as a holiday gift that gives back, perfect for individuals, families and organizations to also have a presence on the rails. This year’s featured railcar is a 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Passenger Car in emerald green, for $275. Standard railcars are available for $175, cabooses for $225 and engines for $325.

Tickets are $4 for children ages 2 to 12 and seniors over 65. Adults are $7 and children under 2 are admitted for free.
