North Pole Express at the Union Depot

  • Union Depot 214 E. 4th Street Saint Paul, MN 55101 USA (map)

Children and trains go together during the Holiday Season like colorful lights, brightly iced cookies, festively wrapped gifts and family and friends.  This is your invitation to join us for North Pole Express at Union Depot St. Paul; an experience highlighted with vintage passenger cars and an operating steam locomotive.

Minneapolis-based steam locomotive “Milwaukee Road #261” and refurbished cars, maintained and staffed by RHMA volunteer members, will provide the experience of a real steam train, Santa and his elves and holiday fun for all.  Bring family and friends and climb aboard this holiday apparition from the past for an hour and a half long experience that includes the North Pole and a visit from Santa Claus.  Avoid the trouble of setting up your old train set around your tree this year and let us provide you with a REAL train for the holidays.

Tickets are $17.50 for children and $19.50 for adults and are available here

Your ticket includes a mile long train ride to Santa’s village and then back to Union Depot. Once Santa is on board,  children will have a chance to meet Santa on the way back to Union Depot. See more at
