The Kamloops Heritage Railway and the 2141 steam train has been a long-standing part of the Kamloops community. A traditional Christmas in Kamloops typically includes a Spirit of Christmas train ride. The Spirit of Christmas is an hour and a half adventure aboard the 8km long train decked out in Christmas fashion. There is something magical about trains especially around the Christmas season. From toy train sets around the Christmas tree to the magic of The Polar Express the Spirit of Christmas is a great way to get the whole family involved in an old-fashioned Christmas adventure.
The train its self boasts thousands of Christmas lights illuminating the night sky as well as hot chocolate and carols to round out the perfect Christmas adventure. Although you will have your own assigned seat you are free to tour the train to take in each of the decorated cars and even visit with Santa’s comfy throne in the rear of the train. If everyone who books their adventure this Christmas is on the Nice List there is a good chance that the big man himself will be there to meet and greet with the little ones.
The Spirit of Christmas will be live this year starting on December 6th through December 21st on the weekends and typically sells out so book your tickets as soon as possible! Tickets go on sale November 4th and don’t forget to dress warmly as some of the cars are open. You can purchase tickets here after November 4th.
