Santa Trains 2021

Our Annual Santa Trains are run in partnership with Finger Lakes Railway, a common carrier railroad. As a common carrier railroad, all passengers who ride Finger Lakes trains this year must follow federal regulations while onboard, all stay seated and be masked for the entire ride and Santa would not be able to sit and visit each child. Not much fun.
The enjoyment of our passengers is most important and due to current conditions, our Santa Trains will not run this year.
As this is the second year we have not been able to have this fundraising event, please consider making a donation using for holiday purchases, or our Donations Page. We would most appreciate anything you can give.
Below are links to area groups many have trips planned this year.
We wish your family a joyful holiday and look forward to riding our Santa Trains next year!

Due to the pandemic, Friends of the Railroad Santa Trains
have been cancelled in 2020 and 2021.
We look forward to running Santa Trains
for you, your family and friends in 2023.
