Christmas Tree Train
Sun Nov 27

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. Once on board, passengers will enjoy coffee, hot chocolate, and donuts. The train will arrive at Wiggins at approx 8:30 AM where passengers will disembark at the tree farm to go pick and cut your Christmas tree down. Once you pick your tree, Wiggins will bundle and tag it. Your tree will then be placed onto our flat car, which will be in tow on our train. At 9:45 AM, passengers will then board the train and be brought back to West Chester where you will be assisted in off loading your Christmas trees. Don't miss this new spin on a classic holiday tradition! Seating is very limited so please order soon! Visit www.wigginschristmastrees.com for additional information about the tree farm. All trees have the special price of $40 for all Tree Train ticket holders.

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 for tree purchases. West Chester Railroad will have help on hand to off load trees from the train, but it is your responsibility to make sure trees are secured for transportation.
