North Pole Express

This Holiday season, join us for a nostalgic journey back in time to the Christmas of yesteryear when you climb aboard the North Pole Express, pulled by the world-famous Pere Marquette 1225!

Depart from the Steam Railroading Institute in Owosso, Michigan for a four-hour, round trip excursion to the Village of Ashley’s Country Christmas. Enjoy a one-hour train ride each way to and from Ashley, choosing one of our five different classes of service. From vintage coaches to historic cabooses, each offers a different type of comfortable accommodation and Christmas ambiance as the North Pole Express races northward!

Now, here’s the opportunity of a life time to ride the rails in first class style with our brand-new Pere Marquette Parlour! Climb aboard the latest addition to our passenger fleet of 1950s Hi-Level lounge cars that once served one of the Santa Fe Railway’s topnotch passenger train, the El Capitan. PLEASE NOTE: Adults only, ages 18 or older. 

Upon arrival at the Village of Ashley’s Country Christmas, passengers will disembark for a two-hour Christmas party straight out of the past! Participate in the numerous activities the village has to offer; live entertainment, arts and crafts, and having your picture taken in front of the massive Pere Marquette 1225. Of course, the highlight will be meeting Santa Claus himself!

The North Pole Express will operate on Saturdays and Sundays starting on November 16th and concluding on December 21st (Each trip is an approximately four-hour experience).
