Join Santa for a festive train ride! Orange Empire Railway Museum celebrates the holidays Dec. 14, 15, 21 and 22 with the afternoon Santa Train and special evening rides to Santa’s Workshop. This treasured tradition at our train and trolley heritage park in Perris is fun for the whole family. Every child visits with Santa on board, hears Christmas stories and joins elves in singing Christmas carols. Children write and mail letters to Santa. The evening train takes passengers to Santa’s workshop, where children can decorate cookies, build a little train car and play at Thomas & Friends train tables. Enjoy hot chocolate and treats and lots more activities. Seats are limited for evening trains so advance reservations are recommended. Call Orange Empire Railway Museum for ticket prices and information at 951-943-3020 or visit www.oerm.org.
