Choo-choo-choose the West Coast Express Santa train this holiday season!

West Coast Express Santa Train

The Santa Train departs Mission City at 10 a.m.

The West Coast Express Santa Train is back on track again, benefiting community toy bureaus! It’s a great kick-off to the holiday season and such a worthy cause.

Please bring your entire family and invite all your friends on Saturday, Dec. 8 and 15, and help make Christmas brighter for kids in your community!

Bring along a new, unwrapped toy donation (should be similar in value to a WCE ticket), which will go to the station’s local Christmas Bureau. It’s a great way to give back to families in your community this holiday season, and will get your friends and family a round trip ticket.

The Santa Train departs Mission City at 10 a.m. and stops at all WCE stations chugging along the way. Once in Vancouver, you can enjoy a day of holiday sights and sounds before returning home from Waterfront Station at 4 p.m. Yule definitely express your happiness, we know!
