VRE's Annual Operation Lifesaver Santa Trains
Every year just before Christmas, kids and their parents are given the
opportunity to ride a train and meet Santa and Mrs. Claus, who are on board VRE
trains to promote rail safety and Operation Lifesaver’s “Look,
Listen and Live” campaign. There will be plenty of Santa’s helpers
joining in handing out candy canes and coloring books, along with high school
choral groups and other festivity-makers.
We know it has been a long wait (as some of you have been anxious about
Santa Trains since May), but information on the ever popular Operation Lifesaver
Santa Trains is finally here!
Again, the event, taking place on Saturday, December 8th uses this
opportunity to remind people of the importance of rail safety. So remember,
that this event is not just for fun, but it also has a serious and
important message: "Look, listen and live!" from
In addition, Operation Lifesaver Santa Trains also work
in conjunction with the Marine
Corps Toys for Tots. So on December 8th, our Leeland Road, Manassas,
Burke Centre, and Woodbridge stations will be drop off sites for the
Marine Corps Toys for Tots Campaign. We are, therefore, encouraging
everyone to bring a toy to the Santa Trains so that someone less fortunate
in the Virginia area can share in the joys of the holidays.
