Grapevine Vintage Railroad (GVRR) strongly encourages our guests to purchase tickets for this event in even numbers to prevent other guests being seated with your party.  All of our coaches are equipped with bench-style seating, designed to accommodate two guests.  Because of the nature of this event, we will be seating the train to maximize the available seating. Guests purchasing tickets in odd numbers will find a member from another party seated with them, or will have a family member seated with another party.


Check in at least 30 minutes before your reserved ticketed time (departure time). Train doors close 10 minutes prior to departure. We cannot hold trains for late arrivals and passengers will not be allowed to board after doors are closed. Missed trains will not be refunded. Please give yourself extra time to park and get to Grapevine’s Christmas Village (No shuttle service available).


Arrive early to take your photo with Santa prior to your North Pole Express excursion inside the North Pole Express General Store (701 S. Main St.).
