Happy Holidays! Children and families boarded the Polar Express for a magical ride to the North Pole. Hot cocoa, cookies, silver bells, and storytelling were a part of the journey, as were visits from the conductors, hobo joe, and Santa Claus himself. Proceeds from the event directly support the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad museum’s mission to preserve and operate historic two-foot gauge railroad equipment for the education and enjoyment of the public.
