Texas State Railroad: Tickets On Sale for Texas' Authentic Polar Express
Posted 07 - 16 - 2019

Palestine, Texas – Tickets are on sale now for the 2019 season of THE POLAR EXPRESSTM at Texas State

Railroad. The first POLAR EXPRESSTM of the season heads to the North Pole on Saturday, November 15 @ 5:00 p.m. Ticket prices start as low as $20 per child, depending on the date and time of departure.

The Palestine depot offers a festive holiday-setting featuring lights, tinsel, garland and costumed characters sure to excite and inspire every child in your group ... from age 2 to 92. The adventure is even more entertaining when families and friends show up in their pajamas! Make sure those PJs are warm and’s cold at the North Pole!

The magical story comes to life the minute the train departs the Palestine Depot for the journey to the North Pole. Every coach becomes a stage for a LIVE musical performance as the Cocoa Chefs serve hot chocolate and cookies while dancing and singing. Children are captivated as train staff recites the classic children’s book, The Polar Express, by Chris Van Allsburg. It is encouraged to purchase a book along with your reservation so your child can read his/her own book along with the Cocoa Chefs.

Seats are limited in Presidential, sky-view Dome and art-deco First Class where keepsake POLAR EXPRESSTM mugs, hot chocolate and cookies make this a truly magical experience.

Deluxe Coach featuring table-top seating for parties of four, Coach with historic Pullman-style seating and the historic Open-air coach (no glass in windowpanes) also receives hot chocolate and cookies. All cars have large viewing windows, thrilling children as they get their first glimpse of Santa and the North Pole.

At the North Pole, Santa and his elves greet passengers and board the train. St. Nick gives everyone the first gift of Christmas – a silver sleigh bell (only believers can hear ringing!). On the ride back to THE POLAR EXPRESSTM train depot, the Cocoa Chefs lead passengers in singing joyous Christmas carols.
