Lincoln, NH - Officials with the Hobo and Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad announced today that due to rising Covid-19 numbers in the State of New Hampshire, and out of an abundance of caution, their annual Santa Express Trains will not operate this season. Instead, the railroad hopes to once again offer these special holiday excursions in 2022.

"The railroad had planned to make Santa Express Train tickets available in early November, but due to Covid-19 positivity rates trending upward, we felt it best to hold off on ticket sales due to the surrounding uncertainty", said railroad manager Benjamin Clark. "Regrettably, after reviewing the data in our region, we felt it was the proper decision to make at this time."

The Hobo and Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad will re-open for the 2022 season in Mid-May. For additional information, please visit or call (603) 745-2135.
