The Polar Express

The Polar Express

‘Tis the season for the infamous Polar Express! The Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad creates this incredible immersive experience based on the award-winning classic book by Chris Van Allsburg.


Hop on board and travel from downtown Durango all the way to the North Pole, see Santa Claus, and warm up with hot chocolate and cookies all in the comfort of your pajamas! The staff will guide you through the story while singing songs and dancing. You will even receive the first gift of Christmas directly from Santa himself.
