Delivering Rides & Letters to Santa

For more than one hundred years, railway post offices crisscrossed Colorado carrying the mail, including letters to Santa.

This holiday season, the Colorado Railroad Museum’s Santa Claus Special will be delivering letters to Santa.

Kids, download your Letter to Santa here—then create your gift wish list and color your letter before turning it in to the Colorado Railroad Museum’s Railway Post Office Car No. 60 during the event.

The Santa Claus Special is Saturday, December 6, Saturday and Sunday, December 13 and 14 and Saturday, December 20, 2014. The Museum is open from 9:00AM – 5:00PM. The train departs every 30 minutes between 10:00AM and 4:00PM. Santa is available from 10:00AM until 3:00PM.

Children will want to bring their wish list to share with Santa and Mrs. Claus and then enjoy hot chocolate by the Depot General Store—where they’ll find a generous selection of Thomas the Tank Engine and other railroad toys, games, puzzles and clothing.

Cost is $5.00 for children (under 2 are free), $15.00 for adults, $30 for families (two adults and up to five children) and $10 for seniors (over 60).
