It’s lovely weather for a train ride together with you! Take a magical ride with Santa Claus this Saturday, November 29, for PATCO’s 17th 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 10:03 a.m., it’s all aboard as the first Yuletide Ride pulls out of Woodcrest Station and heads for Center City Philadelphia. The second Yuletide Ride departs Woodcrest Station at 10:18 a.m. 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.
