Christmas Tree Train
Sun Nov 25
Dec 2 & 9
8:00 AM only!

West Chester Railroad is again hosting it's popular Christmas Tree train this holiday season! We have partnered with Wiggins Tree Farm in West Chester, PA. The train will depart Market St station in West Chester, PA promptly at 8:00 AM. The train will arrive at Wiggins at approx 8:30 AM where passengers will disembark at the tree farm to go pick and cut down your Christmas tree (hand saws will be supplied). Once you've picked that perfect tree, it will be banded up, tagged, and placed on our flat car. Passengers will then board the train and be brought back to West Chester where your trees will be offloaded from the train. Don't miss this new spin on a classic holiday tradition The total length of this ride is about 2 hours. Seating is very limited!

All trees have the special price of $45 for all Tree Train ticket holders. Your train ticket does not include the price of the tree.

Please note: Santa will NOT be on board this train. He is only on board our "Santa's Express" trains. Christmas Trees are purchased separately and are priced at the discretion of Wiggin's Tree Farm. Wiggins accepts only CASH or CHECK for tree purchases. West Chester Railroad will have help on hand to load trees on to your car, but it is your responsibility to make sure trees are secured for transportation.

Adults - $21.00
Children (2-12) - $15.00
Under 2 ride free!
