Get ready to believe! Tickets for the California State Railroad Museum's annual holiday Polar Express Train rides go on sale to members only on September 27–29, 2016 and to the general public on Thursday, October 1, 2016. (No tickets sales on September 30.) The Railroad Museum's sister organization, Railtown 1897 in Jamestown will also be holding Polar Express train rides again this holiday season. Members of the Californa State Railroad Museum and Railroad 1897 are eligible to participate in member advance ticket sales.
In order to reserve member tickets, your membership must be active or renewed by Monday, September 5, 2016. So if you're not a member, you can still consider becoming one (it's a great deal, actually). Tickets to this event always sell out right away, so being a member means you have a better chance of getting your preferred date and time.
