Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, Coopersville & Marne Railway runs the Santa Train every weekend. This polar express ride is one of the best winter train rides in Michigan.
The Coopersville & Marne Railway is a historic, all-volunteer railroad that operates vintage locomotives from the 1950s and passenger cars from the 1920s.
One of the most overlooked winter train rides in Michigan is the Christmas/Holiday Express run by Little River Railroad.
As a nonprofit, volunteer-run organization, the Little River Railroad is committed to restoring and operating historic railway equipment.
The holiday trains are available during the Holiday Magic event, which is held on select dates from late November through late December.
