Visit The North Pole Courtesy Of The Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum

Friday, November 20, 2015

Now through Dec. 26, families can hop onboard vintage rail cars to visit the North Pole. The Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum is offering day and evening trips as part of its iconic North Pole Limited event.

“We offer something for everyone,” said Steve Freer, museum spokesperson. “Some families enjoy the lights and sparkle of the nighttime trips, while others find that the daytime trips fit better into their schedules. Whatever time of day, the fun and magic is always there.”

North Pole Limited trips are offered on select days at 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 3:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $24 per passenger, age one and up.

The holiday magic aboard the North Pole Limited includes storytelling, child-friendly refreshments, unique gifts and a visit by Santa. Guests on the nighttime rides also enjoy lighted Christmas displays as they leave Grand Junction on their way to the North Pole.

This year, “The North Pole Limited: A Story About the First Christmas Train,” a customized Christmas children’s book written and illustrated by local professionals, will be read during your trip and will be for sale after the ride.

The Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum is an educational, non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve railroading history for future generations. The museum is the southeast’s largest operating historical railroad and is celebrating more than 53 years in business. The museum is at 4119 Cromwell Road in Chattanooga.
