The Catskill Mountain Railroad regrets to announce that it has canceled THE POLAR EXPRESS Train Ride for 2020 due to the Covid-19 epidemic. The Covid-19 restrictions placed on the CMRR to operate the event safely would have resulted a substandard experience for our customers.
The good news is that the CMRR is currently operating and plans to continue to operate trains from now until the end of 2020. The revised format of our Christmas trains is still under development, but we will be posting the new schedule in the near future.
In the meantime, we will offer the following options to our Polar customers:
1. Leave your 2020 reservation with us for use in 2021. A special pre-opening week will be set aside for current ticket holders to choose dates and seating, and open only to current ticket holders.
2. Donate your tickets to the railroad.
3. Seek a refund for the 2020 tickets you have purchased
The CMRR requests that current customers respond with your decision before December 15th to firstname.lastname@example.org
As soon as we receive information from the licensing company we will display a tentative 2021 calendar for THE POLAR EXPRESS Train Ride.
