The Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Company & Museum presents another season of enchantment as The Polar Express train departs Portland for a journey to the “North Pole.” The adventure begins at the Ocean Gateway Train Depot where passengers arrive to meet the Conductor and board the train. Holiday decorations inside the train will add to the festive atmosphere as guests on board mingle with the Conductor, enjoy hot chocolate and cookies served in style by our chefs, and listen to a reading of the enchanting story over the sound system. Santa will greet children aboard the train, while passengers sing along to carols as they journey back to the train station from a special outpost of the North Pole. Every child receives a special bell as a souvenir of the event. Coach $25; 1st Class $40.  For train dates & times, go to
