THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride will be the largest annual event for 2021 at the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Co. & Museum (MNGRR). The rolling history museum’s Christmas train has become a holiday tradition drawing over 19,000 passengers in 2019. Tickets on sale online now!

This year’s fun begins at the Maine Narrow Gauge’s Outdoor Boarding Platform. The Conductor boards passengers onto the 10 historic coaches decked out for the holidays. Once on board, Christmas music fills the cars as the steam locomotive powered by beloved Steam Engine #3 thunders to the “North Pole”. Children will see Santa waving to all aboard the train as he prepares his sleigh for departure. Get a second look at the holiday lights outside the train as you travel back to the station. Hot chocolate and cookies will be served after the train ride this year.

MNGRR has proudly earned their Covid-19 prevention badge. Touch-free purchasing and boarding is made possible by new mobile tickets from PortTIX. Golden Tickets will be distributed on the train ride since we will not be mailing physical boarding tickets this year.

Masks ARE required on board THE POLAR EXPRESS™.
