A Christmas train adorned with 15,000 and travels through the scenic countryside of Waterloo? Sign me up!

The Waterloo Central Railway is back for another year with its Heritage Christmas Train. Board on as Santa, his elves and prancing reindeers for a trip to the North Pole as you step back in time  “A Vintage Christmas -– Christmas Lights Adventure." 

Get into the holiday spirit as Christmas carolers and stories of the past are untold on board and all your favourite Christmas characters and toys come to life.

Don't forget to dress in your best Christmas-themed attire and bring your letter to Santa. 

The journey begins at the WCR Farmers' Market Station and is an hour long.
