All aboard the 20th anniversary West Coast Express Santa Train!

WCE Santa Train 1
Back for another year of holiday fun for a great cause is the West Coast Express Santa Train!

This annual toy drive is a great day for the whole family!

To ride the Santa Train, all you need to do is bring along a new, unwrapped toy as a donation.

Trade your toy for a ticket to ride and make the holidays a little brighter for families in need.

Last year over 3,760 Santa Train riders donated a record-setting 4,219 toys!

There are two rides on December 5th and December 12th.

The ride begins in Mission City at 10 am. It will then stop at all WCE stations along the way picking up excited holiday riders.

Pssssst… Santa will be there too!

Once in Vancouver, you have the day to explore and have fun downtown.

Don’t forget to bring your camera because Santa will be at Waterfront Station (aka The North Pole) for photo ops at 3 pm before boarding the train home.

The train leaves Waterfront at 4 pm.WCE Santa Train 3
