Event Details

If the kiddies and grandma have been good all year (okay, most of the year)… add a little magic to the season and come on out to Virginia City to ride the V&T Candy Cane Express. Steeped in holiday spirit, this whimsical train has become a local tradition for families of all ages.Trains are operating November 24 & 25 and December 2 through December 24, Saturdays and Sundays with trains leaving at 12, 1:30 and 3 pm.
On the scenic 50-minute journey over the 140-year old V&T railroad route, you will enjoy hot cocoa or cider, candy canes and cookies and sing-a-long carols on the festively decorated train. Listen to a reading of the 1823 classic “T’was the Night Before Christmas,” and watch little faces light up while riding through the enchanting Candy Cane tunnel. Whether the V&T Candy Cane Express is a new experience or one you’ve cherished over the years, it’s a magical event you and your family cherish.
