Tickets for Midwest Central Railroad’s North Pole Express went on sale last week. Guests wishing to ride to the “North Pole” can mail in their ticket reservation and payment until October 28, 2011. Phone reservations will begin Nov. 1, and usually sell out within one week.
We have been taking a ride on the North Pole Express for several years and we mailed in our reservations early last week.
While the North Pole Express usually runs the first two week-ends in December, this year, three train rides have been added for the Saturday after Thanksgiving, giving guests more opportunities to catch a train to the North Pole.
The North Pole Express is based on the story of The Polar Express, but for license and copyright reasons, is named The North Pole Express. The basic idea is the same.
I was telling a mom of another train enthusiast just last week-end about this exciting and seasonal journey. One thing that worries me is what we will do once the boy decides he is too big or too old and doesn’t want to go as the husband and I enjoy the experience almost as much as he does. I guess we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.
