Santa’s Paradise Express on Strasburg Railroad (Lancaster, PA)

This weekend marked the very beginning of Santa’s Paradise Express at the Strasburg Railroad!  Running every weekend up until Christmas, we had a chance to check out this holiday tradition TODAY.

What a wonderful time!  The weather could not have been more perfect (though the train is fully enclosed, so inclement weather would not have been a problem).

Santa actually visited each and every train car en route and paused for pictures with each family.  He also gave every child a small toy!

Strasburg Railroad provided us with tickets so that we could check out Santa’s Paradise Express and report back to you about what we thought!  All opinions are 100% ours.
