Polar Express returns to Golden Railroad Museum

Come take a trip to the North Pole at the Colorado Railroad Museum this holiday season.

The Polar Express Train Ride will be offered Nov. 12—Dec. 23 for families and lovers of the classic children’s tale.

“The Polar Express” story is a popular, family holiday tradition, said Donald Tallman, the railroad museum’s executive director. “Now, they are able to be a part of that magical movie experience.”

The railroad museum has recreated the experience to make the adventures of the story come alive, including the popular hot chocolate scene, Tallman said.

Live acting and elaborate decorations will immerse people in the sights, sounds and intrigue of the Polar Express.

The story will be performed in its entirety. While being served cookies and hot chocolate, children are encouraged to interact with the actors and tell what makes the Christmas season special to them. Then, riders will board the train making its way to the North Pole.

This is the second year the railroad museum has put on the Polar Express, Tallman said, and last year’s popularity far exceeded expectations.

“The Polar Express” is a “magical and heartwarming story,” he said, about a “boy who is at that age where Santa teeters between reality and myth. We’ve recreated that experience.”
