North Pole Express

Visit Santa Aboard the North Pole Express
Heber Valley Railroad continues annual family tradition

Utah’s popular holiday family tradition continues as Heber Valley Railroad’s annual “North Pole Express” chugs back into service this holiday season. The train ride will take passengers on a journey to see Santa Claus at the North Pole beginning Friday, Nov. 23.

Aboard the train, passengers can sing along to classic holiday carols and hear the story of the North Pole Express while Santa’s elves serve hot cocoa and cookies. Upon arrival at the North Pole, Santa Claus will board the train and greet all of the children with a special gift. Children of all ages are encouraged to wear their pajamas.

The North Pole Express will run at 5 and 7:30 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays through Christmas Eve, with daily departures starting Monday, Dec. 17. Select dates will also offer 2 p.m. departure times.

Tickets for this magical family experience are now available, and prices begin at $30 for adults and $20 for kids (ages 3-12). First-class ticket options are available at $47 for adults and $37 for kids (ages 3-12). Discounts for groups of 20 or more are also available upon request.

Tickets can be purchased by calling the railroad at 435-654-5601, online at or at the Heber Valley Depot, 450 South 600 West, Heber City. For more information and directions, contact the Heber Valley Railroad at 435-654-5601 or visit

About the Heber Valley Railroad
The Heber Valley Historic Railroad dates back to 1899, when trains served the pioneers who first settled the valley, and now operates as a nonprofit organization. Depending upon availability, vintage coaches are pulled through the beautiful Heber Valley either by one of two 1907 Baldwin steam locomotives or by one of three vintage diesel electric locomotives.
