LINCOLN, NH – The Hobo Railroad in Lincoln, NH is excited to announce they have added 11am Santa Express Trains to their schedule on Friday, November 27th as well as all existing Saturday dates which include November 28th, December 5th, 12th & 19th, 2020.
The 11am trains are in addition to the existing 1pm Santa Express Trains already scheduled for weekends beginning Friday, November 27th and operating through Sunday, December 20th, 2020.
Passengers on all of this year’s Santa Express Trains will have an opportunity to meet with Santa and Mrs. Claus on the train while young children complete letters to Santa. Once the trains depart Hobo Junction Station, Santa and Mrs. Claus will make their way through the train to visit with everyone as well as pick up the completed letters to Santa.
On the return trip to Hobo Junction, Santa and Mrs. Claus will make their way through the train once again, although this time they will surprise each young child with a gift. Upon returning to the Station, guests are encouraged to take pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus on the stations’ south platform.
“Given the increased interest in this year’s Santa Trains, we’ve added a one-hour Santa Express Train at 11am on select days”, stated Paul Giblin, Director of Marketing & Business Development at the Hobo & Winnipesaukee Scenic Railroad. “The 11am Santa Express Trains are ideal for families with young children, especially given that the entire experience is exactly the same as the 80-minute Santa Express Trains.”
Please note strict compliance with State of New Hampshire COVID-19 Guidelines will be followed. Santa Express Trains will be limited to 50% capacity and advanced reservations will be required. All passengers will be required to wear face masks while they are on the property and while they are on the train. As a reminder, food and beverage will not be allowed or available on the train this year

It should be noted that the difference between First Class and Coach Class seating is that First Class seating is at tables, while Coach Class seating is at bench-style seating.
