The Hobo Railroad "No Snow Express" is set to Roll During Christmas Vacation Week

LINCOLN, NH - No Snow? No Problem… The Hobo Railroad's “No Snow Express” is set to roll during the upcoming Christmas vacation week from Lincoln, NH. Most years, the White Mountains are a winter wonderland during the holidays. This year however, people have been left wondering what happened to Winter?

On December 26, 27, 28 & 29, 2015 the Hobo Railroad will operate the “No Snow Express”. Trains will depart the Railroad's Victorian-style train station at 64 Railroad Street at 1:00pm each day. On board, all passengers will be treated to complimentary hot chocolate while activity packets will be available for the children.

“Believe me, we were not expecting a lack of snow and warm temperatures during the Christmas vacation week” stated Benjamin Clark, Vice President of the Hobo Railroad. “In fact, it was our hope the Ice Castles attraction here at the Railroad would be open and operating during the holiday vacation week. But these plans melted away with the unseasonably warm temperatures and lack of snow on the ground. Now we can only hope the “No Snow Express” will be enough to usher in Old Man Winter. You have to do the best you can with what Mother Nature throws your way, and a train ride with the family is a perfect way to enjoy the Holidays - regardless of the weather.”

The “No Snow Express” is an hour and twenty minute excursion that travels through the woods and along the Pemigewasset River between Lincoln and Woodstock, NH and back - providing a round trip distance of approximately 15 miles. It's a perfect way to celebrate the holidays and is appropriate for children of all ages.

According to Clark, “It's not what you do, but rather how you do it. Instead of making tracks in the snow with skis and snowmobiles, families can make tracks aboard the train - just sit back, relax and unwind - and leave the driving to us. Don't let the lack of snow dampen your holiday spirit, just hop aboard the “No Snow Express” and enjoy the season with your family and friends.”
