Christmas City Express at Ma & Pa railroad

Ride the Christmas City Express enjoying the spirit of the season while supporting the restoration of one of York County’s cultural gems.

You and your family can ride the Christmas City Express enjoying the spirit of the season with your family and friends while supporting the restoration of one of York County’s cultural gems. This children’s story experience, complete with a journey aboard the Ma & Pa Railroad through the Muddy Creek Valley, is a delightful way for Central Pennsylvanians to celebrate the season. The tale recounts the overnight journey of a young girl traveling by train to her grandparents for Christmas who is stranded in a terrible blizzard and how the train crew saves Christmas for everyone on board.

A devastating flood in late August left the historic village of Muddy Creek Forks filled with mud and debris and the north end of the rail line temporarily inoperable. Volunteers have worked tirelessly this fall to recover and ready the Village and railroad for a memorable Christmas Season. Proceeds from this year’s Christmas City Express will help to rebuild areas of track destroyed by the flood.
