The North Pole
The North Pole Express
Owosso Saturday, November 18 6:00 A.M. – 5:30 P.M.
Join us for this uniquely Michigan holiday event. Take a magical Christmas excursion and ride behind the world-famous steam locomotive Pere Marquette 1225 (PM 1225). Built in 1941, this majestic locomotive is most famous for its role in the 2004 Warner Bros Christmas Classic, The Polar Express, where the PM 1225’s blueprints were used as the prototype for the locomotive image, and its sounds were used to bring the Polar Express to life! Passengers will board the train at the Steam Railroading Institute in Owosso, Michigan and take a journey back in time to the Village of Ashley’s 1950s Country Christmas. The North Pole Express is a four-hour magical experience that will create memories that will last a lifetime. The train ride will last approximately an hour each way, while the passengers will get approximately two hours to participate in the activities in Ashley. In Ashley, included with your train ticket is: admission, entertainment (i.e. illusionist, magician, etc), horse drawn carriage rides, arts/crafts, Santa, glass blower demonstrations, chain saw carving, street performers, a petting zoo, reindeer, and each year they add something new.
Registration Deadline: Nov. 1
