It's lovely weather for a train ride together with you! Take a magical ride with Santa Claus this Saturday, November 24, for PATCO's 16th annual Yuletide Ride. The fun begins at 9 a.m. at Woodcrest Station in Cherry Hill, NJ, with clowns and live music from the John Breslin Band, Season's Greetings, Sound Express Barbershop Quartet and others. Most important, Santa will be at the station and on the train. At 10:15 a.m., it's all aboard as the Yuletide Ride pulls out of Woodcrest Station and heads for Center City Philadelphia, making stops along the way. Once in Center City, the Yuletide Ride will stop at 8th & Market streets and on Locust Street at 9th & 10th, 12th & 13th, and 15th & 16th streets. The Yuletide Ride is free for everyone boarding at Woodcrest Station. Cashiers at Woodcrest Station will sell return trip tickets for passengers ages 5 and up. Share the joy of the season!
