According to the Carson City Convention and Visitors Bureau, Polar Express trains on the V&T Railroad are sold out. However, tickets for the Santa train at the Nevada State Railroad Museum and the Candy Cane Express in Virginia City are still available. If you must do a Polar Express, check "Santa Train Rides for Christmas and the Holidays" for information on the Nevada Northern Railway Polar Express trains in Ely.
Northern Nevada has several excursion railroads that make for wonderful family adventures. However, these trains usually spend the winter months resting up for the busy summer tourist season - except during the winter holiday season.
In the Reno area, these special holiday trains are running excursions during December. You should plan ahead, because the Santa train at the Nevada State Railroad Museum and the Candy Cane Express in Virginia City, will only be taking passengers on a few weekend days. My article gives you details about trip dates, times, and tickets. All aboard!
There are lots of free Christmas and holiday activities and events starting as December begins. There are things to do in Reno and Sparks, as well as in nearby Carson City and Virginia City. See what's going on with my article about "Free Christmas and Holiday Activities Around Reno."
