This post is no longer accurate. The Polar Express has returned to Union Station for the 2017 holiday season!
Over the last few weeks I have been getting a lot of hits on my post from last year about our trip to Union Station to ride the Polar Express. I think people are looking for information for this years holiday train ride. Well, this year at Union Station the Polar Express is being replaced by The Santa Express and will feature the classic holiday story ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.
Featuring spectacular decor, North Pole Village activities, ice skating and a new Fire & Light show offer family fun all season long. Visit Holidays At Union Station for more info on all of the upcoming events.
The Santa Express Train Ride is the centerpiece of this expanded holiday event. Real trains pull out of St. Louis Union Station — the 1894 National Historic Landmark terminal — beginning November 18 and continuing through December 30, 2016. Trains will leave the station at 4:45, 6:15, 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays.
