Events > Santa Train


Boarding at the Barber Junction Visitor's Center, kids and their parents can enjoy a daytime train ride to the Roundhouse with Santa and his elves.  Ol' Saint Nick and his helpers will be handing out candy canes and oranges - a Southern RR tradition!  

Later, stepping off the train at the Master Mechanic's Office, families can stop by the Gift Shop, or the Wagons, Wheels & Wings exhibit area to make a craft to take home. 

Enjoy what has become a seasonal tradition for many or make a new tradition to celebrate a railroad Christmas with history and heritage at the N.C. Transportation Museum in Spencer!
