This whimsical holiday train will leave r.k. Miles Depot Station on December 15th and 16th, 2018, taking its riders on a one-hour enchanting journey through the Green Mountains of Southern Vermont.

Refreshments will be served on decorated trains. Adding to the memories of this holiday ride, the elves will be reading a special story about Christopher Pop-In-Kins, who will also be hidden on every train in the greenery peeking to see who's been naughty and nice! Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus will make a surprise visit to provide every child with a special gift. In addition, there will be a special guest appearance granted by Santa Claus for Christopher Pop-In-Kins to pop into Manchester, VT and share in the excitement of the season. He'll be here with his elves boarding the passengers for a ride of a lifetime on the ELF EXPRESS. Join Christopher and his friends on a fun-filled, sing-along mini-performance adventure through the Green Mountains. This is a Pop-In-Kins family adventure....
