Santa Train Ride at the OERM.

Our family loves trains and of course Christmas. I love when both can be mixed together. I shared about Irvine Park Railroad, and wanted to share about another Southern California train ride to Santa. The Orange Empire Railway Museum celebrates the holidays Dec. 14, 15, 21 and 22 with the afternoon Santa Train and special evening rides to Santa’s Workshop.

Every child visits with Santa on board, hears Christmas stories and joins elves in singing Christmas carols. Children write and mail letters to Santa. The evening train takes passengers to Santa’s workshop, where children can decorate cookies, build a little train car and play at Thomas & Friends train tables. Enjoy hot chocolate and treats and lots more activities. Seats are limited for evening trains so advance reservations are recommended. Call Orange Empire Railway Museum for ticket prices and information at 951-943-3020 or visit
