Fredericksburg Santa Train Information
VRE is pleased to announce the Annual Operation Lifesaver Santa Trains.
We want everyone in the Metropolitan area to be conscientious of rail safety
and to promote the "Look, Listen and Live" campaign.
Ride the Train with Santa, but Don't Forget to Bring a TOY
This year, VRE is continuing another holiday favorite. As part of the
festivities, during the morning of Santa Trains our Fredericksburg, Manassas,
Burke Centre, and Woodbridge stations will become drop off sites for the Marine
Corps Toys for Tots Campaign. We are encouraging everyone to bring a toy to the
Santa Trains that will be shared with someone less fortunate in the Virginia area.
Yes, we will still be holding our annual on board toy drive Wednesday, December 11th.
