Santa Trains

Santa sleigh being pulled by West Coast Express

West Coast Express Santa Trains will run on Dec. 5 and 12 this year and are a great kick-off to the holiday season... and for such a worthy cause.

The Santa Train departs Mission City at 10 a.m., and stops at all WCE stations along the way. Once in Vancouver, you can enjoy a day of holiday sights and sounds before returning home from Waterfront Station at 4 p.m.

What makes the Santa Trains special, is that we give you a free WCE ticket in exchange when you bring along a new, unwrapped toy donation (worth about the same as a WCE pass) for your community toy bureau. It's a great way to give to those in need in your community, and have a fun-filled day at the same time.

Please bring your entire family and invite all of your friends, and help make Christmas brighter for kids in your community.

The West Coast Express North Pole Station (at Waterfront) will be open as of 2:45 p.m. for holiday activities and a photo op' with Santa. And don't forget the generous folks at Dairyland provide a taste of egg nog while you wait for your trip home. So bring your camera and your Christmas cheer, and we'll see you there!
