The Polar Express Train RideDistance from the centre of Kingsbridge: 13.8 miles
This Christmas, for the first time ever, the South Devon Railway is thrilled to bring to you THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride; a truly magical experience for the whole family.
The most iconic feature of The Polar Express is its sleek black steam engine. It’s even inscribed with the ‘1225’ signage to identify it as Santa’s own train. Your children will gasp with amazement as the Polar Express train pulls into the station. Billowing steam all the way, your authentic steam train ride will last around an hour. This gives you plenty of time to appreciate the steam experience.
Throughout your train ride you’ll be entertained, meeting the Conductor and his crew. All the while the train steams towards the North Pole. Here you’ll meet Santa and one of his friendly elves. He will climb on board the train to meet you all. After the show, there’ll be a photo opportunity. The whole family can pose with the Polar Express train – especially if you have a selfie stick. With the steam covering the platform, it makes a magical Christmas photo.
