Happy Holidays from
Nevada's Pony Express Territory!

A holiday favorite comes to life

Experience the magic of Chris Van Allsburg's  classic children's book "The Polar Express," as it comes to life on the rails of the Nevada Northern Railway. The journey takes you from Ely, Nevada on a special trip right to the North Pole.   Santa's Elves are honored that Nevada Northern Railway's Polar Express train has been voted as the "Best Special Event in Rural Nevada" by readers of Nevada Magazine.

Each passenger to the North Pole are served hot chocolate and cookies while listening to the beloved story of the Polar Express and music from the Polar Express soundtrack. Many of Santa's helpers are on-board to help you enjoy the trip. Everyone experiences that magic moment when the train arrives at the North Pole and Santa Claus himself is waiting! Santa will board The Polar Express and personally present each child their own special gift.
