Happy Holiday Railway a Magical Journey to Santa

Happy Holiday RailwayAll aboard! This holiday season, children will board a magical train that will chug through the wintery Illinois countryside. Little faces will excitedly be pressed against the windows as the train meanders to its destination: a visit with Santa Claus. This isn’t the fabled Polar Express, it’s the Happy Holiday Railway, departing from the Illinois Railway Museum.

Before or after your magical journey, make sure to visit Gerstad Builders and see our McHenry County New Homes. You can make it a December to Remember by putting a new home under the Christmas tree. Gerstad Builders has sweetens the deal by offering 50% off all Design Center Selections now through the end of the year. Talk about a BIG wish for Santa!

Speaking of Santa, make sure your children know to stay on Santa’s “good list,” since those that make the list will receive a fun gift. Warm goodies will also be available to keep little bellies delighted. To remember their magical journey, each child will have the chance to make a scrapbook page of the fantastic ride.

Remaining Happy Holiday Railway trips are available December 11, 12, 18 and 19 on the hour from 1 to 4 p.m. Tickets are $12 per person, with each person over one year old required to have a ticket.

Visit the Illinios Railway Museum website for more information and directions to catch a ride on the Happy Holiday Railway.
