Santa's Railroad Wonderland is an extravaganza of Christmas activities. There are night time train and hay rides. Just about every part of our forty acre site is decorated, from the historic depot, the trains, the garden railroad, our three other scale model railroad layouts and everything else in between. We have our own character, Choo Choo Claus. Bring your camera and make your own Christmas memories. Our event has been bringing joy to thousands of families for ten years.
