All aboard the Polar Express in Okehampton

If you and your children are fans of The Polar Express, the magical animated film starring Tom Hanks as the conductor of a very special train, you'll probably jump at the opportunity to ride the real thing.

Dartmoor Railway is running special trips from Okehampton Station on selected dates between 28th November and 28th December. Trains depart at 5pm and 7:30pm.

The trip will take you on a mystical round-trip journey to the North Pole. You're invited to wear pyjamas if you want to stay true to the film!

Once seated you'll find the conductor punching away at the children’s golden tickets, plus chefs dancing and delivering hot chocolate and cookies. There will also be readings of the original story and sing alongs to music from the film.

Once at the North Pole, Santa will be waiting with a gift of a silver sleigh bell for all the children. In addition, each passenger in Premium Class seating will receive the commemorative Polar Express mug.
