The Polar Express is a great Christmas book, DVD, and now location tradition. Many local communities offer a Polar Express ride to benefit local organizations like Scituate Public Schools.

On Saturday, December 7th, 2013 the spirit of the holiday will descend upon the quaint village of Scituate, MA as children embark on a magical train ride to the North Pole. This 60-90 minute train ride departing from the
Greenbush Commuter Rail Station to the North Pole will delight children and adults alike.   Children will be entertained with the reading of this classic story of “The Polar Express”, have milk and cookies, sing Christmas carols, and be visited by Santa’s Elves, Frosty, Rudolph, and the big man in red, Santa, and Mrs. Claus. Children are encouraged to wear their pajamas to get into the spirit of the event.  Each child will receive a special gift from Santa and most importantly the “magical” silver bell.
