We love a good train ride in Ontario. And we especially love holiday-themed train rides! And Elgin County’s longest running tourist attraction is the Port Stanley Terminal Rail, which will soon be hosting Santa Treats Train Rides.
According to Destination Ontario, Port Stanley Terminal Rail has been operating for over 40 years. It is a “heritage, diesel-powered locomotive” and it travels along the former London to Port Stanley track through the scenic Kettle Creek Valley between Port Stanley and St. Thomas.
The heritage train has different events throughout the year, and starting on November 18th, you can hop on board for its holiday special.

“Enjoy a ride through Elgin County in early winter from the warmth of a heated car,” states the Port Stanley Terminal Rail. “Santa has treats for the kids! Watch your children’s anticipation grow as we near our destination to meet Santa. Live entertainment may appear on some trains.”
So plan a trip over to the lakeside village of Port Stanley, get ready to hop on board, and to meet Santa!
