Christmas Express aboard Antique Train – Jefferson, Texas
Come take a ride on the Christmas Express, an antique gas-powered train, for a narrated day trip along the beautiful Big Cypress Bayou. Enjoy a few vignettes along the way and hear about Joyous Christmas Celebrations aboard the train that circles the Piney Woods. The decorated historic railroad depot captures the holiday spirit. Limited seating so get your tickets now.
The Christmas Express will run Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving, November 23 and 24; and on each Saturday throughout December at 12:30 pm and 2:30 pm.
Inclement weather? No worries, just book into the First-Class coach, offering a beautiful historic, warm, enclosed coach. The open-canopied observation cars provide an excellent view of the ride along the river. If you are riding in the open coaches, be sure to dress warmly and bring a blanket, depending on the weather.
The excursion will take you by a life-size nativity scene and the post card sent by soldiers during World War II, and other favorites: Support our Troops display, a whimsical Teddy Bear tree; and Charlie Brown’s forlorn little Christmas tree.
This ride is a narrated day trip that will give you stunning views of the wetlands, wildlife and Big Cypress Bayou as you share family time hearing about scenes of Christmas along the track.
Stay, play, dine, shop and explore Jefferson – a small historic town nestled deep in the Piney Woods of East Texas. Jefferson seems frozen in time and is an elegant reminder of a bygone era.
