Date:Nov 23, 2013 Ages:All Ages Price:$3.00<br><br> Type:Train Ride Location:25 N Madison Ave, North Vernon IN

The North Vernon community is getting an early Christmas present again this November, and it’s the perfect gift for the City of Railroads. The Eighth Annual Santa Express will be Saturday, Nov. 23, 2013 with the Madison Railroad and Park Theatre Civic Centre cosponsoring the seven train rides.

Tickets are $3 each for the rides and are going fast. The 30-minute rides — from the Park Theatre in downtown North Vernon to Vernon and back — are scheduled from 9:15am to 3:15pm. The nominal charge is to cover fuel and insurance costs. As in the past, the Madison Railroad crew will volunteer their time for the event.

“People need to buy their tickets as early as possible,” said Hulda Reichenbach of the Park Theatre where tickets are being sold. “They will be assigned specific rides and cars.”

Santa Claus will accompany the passengers on each ride as will conductor Tom Taylor, who punches tickets and leads Christmas carols.

For ticket information, contact the Park Theatre, 25 N. Madison Ave., telephone 346-0330.

      Thanks for your note – unfortunately we do not utilize an email-driven system for announcements. However, we will post information on our website and Facebook pages when tickets are available. The North Vernon Plain Dealer & Sun will announce an on-sale date as well, with the announcement coming likely a little before Halloween. Stay tuned and thanks for your interest!
