We had previously done an article on the Heber Creeper but would like to re-introduce this fun attraction that is unique to Utah. The late fall and winter are especially fun with there North Pole Express! This fun ride goes from November through December so check it out – children love it. Tickets go fast so book now….
North Pole Express
Throw on your pajamas and take your family on a trip to the North Pole! Elves serve hot drinks and treats, and entertain with their favorite carols. When Santa climbs aboard this trip becomes truly magical.
About the Heber Creeper
The Heber Valley Historic Railroad dates back to 1899 when trains served the pioneers who first settled the valley and now operates as non-profit oganization. Today, vintage coaches are pulled over this beautiful vista by two 1907 Baldwin steam locomotives and three vintage diesel electric locomotives. Over 95,000 passengers ride the train each year and that number is steadily growing.
The railroad has been used in a number of motion pictures and was featured on TV episodes of “Touched by an Angel” and “Promised Land”. In 1999 the Heber Valley Railroad purchased the “Movie Train”. The Steam engine and ten railroad cars have been featured in 33 motion pictures over the past 20 years. The “Movie Train” is now in operation and you’re welcome to come visit and ride where movie stars once worked.
