“All Aboard” The Polar Express at
the Delaware River Railroad Excursions..
Inspired by the run-away hit movie produced by Warner Bros.
Entertainment, Inc. and the award winning book by Chris Van Allsburg,
this holiday favorite comes to life as you and your family take a
ride on The Polar Express.
Set to the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack, families are
sure to enjoy their trip complete with hot chocolate and
cookies served on board the train. Passengers will then be
entertained by a reading of the Polar Express. Santa will greet the
children and each child will receive their own sleigh bell, just
like in the movie, to those who BELIEVE.
Experience the joy of singing songs with our roaming hobos, be
amazed at our Juggling Chef and make your wishes in person to Santa
The Polar Express in Phillipsburg,

Trip length in
time : One hour forty minutes
Departure point: 99 Elizabeth Street Phillipsburg
How early should I arrive: Due to remote parking
and the need to take shuttle busses we strongly suggest
you are AT LEAST 30 minutes early. All trips sell out so
we most probably can not seat you on a later train.
What happens on the train? The train is
beautifully decorated and you will enjoy the story of
the Polar Express read very audibly over our speaker
system, all choreographed with the Polar Express music
from the movie. Hot Chocolate and Cookies are served to
every CHILD ( its their day!). Santa boards the train
and visits the children along with his elves and each
child receives a bell ( the first gift of Christmas)
Can we take pictures with Santa? Yes you may on
your own, or, make use of our professional photographers
who make available ( at a charge) beautiful color
pictures of your family and Santa.
Are trips cancelled due to weather? No, only in a
government posted State Of Emergency.
Refunds: There are none.
Peanuts: it must be assumed that the cookies have
or have been made in a factory that contains nuts.
Hot chocolate: The hot chocolate we use is Swiss
Miss. please contact them with contents inquires.
Hot chocolate: Kids first! Due to the fact that
we are serving over 400 people a trip, we will serve the
children first ( after all the trip is for them!). If
you are a parent and you are wearing PJ's we will serve
you Hot chocolate upon request.
Groups: We will do everything possible to
accommodate groups, BUT, this is quite difficult. Please
inform us via email ( contact link above) of any groups
over 15). to sit together you must be EARLY, ALL
TOGETHER, and IN THE FRONT OF THE LINE. You must see the
station attendants on the platform and they will direct
you to the Northern most car ( to your right) where we
will attempt to seat you together.
Once again, arrive early and board all together.
How do we get our tickets? We DO NOT mail
tickets. You simply bring your emailed receipt to the
ticket office the day of the trip to retrieve your
Exchanges:due to the fact that each trip sells out, there is no way we can
exchange your tickets for another trip. Please make sure when you enter the
dates and times that they are correct, and check with family BEFOREHAND to make
sure there are no schedule conflicts. We also recommend having at least 2
dates/times ready in case your first choice is sold out.: these are NOT allowed on the train as
you would never want to hold one on your lap for 1.5
hours. Lap Sitters are just that, a child on your lap.
There are no group discounts for Polar Express. When ordering tickets for
several families it is best if 1 person takes the lead and orders for the entire
group, that way you are guaranteed to all have tickets for the same trip. If you
order early and another in your party tries later, and the trip is sold out, we
cannot switch you or them into another trip. Also, once you get to the station
and get your tickets, make sure the group leader informs one of the station
platform attendants that your group is here, and the number of people in your
group, so we can help you all board and sit together.
