The Polar Express TM


Vintage Trains brings the Polar Express TM to the heart of Birmingham
•    Full theatrical re-creation of the classic children’s tale on a main line steam train
•    Depart from Birmingham Moor Street station for a journey to the North Pole
•    Experience the sights and sounds of this classic children’s tale performed by professional dancers and actors
•    ‘All aboooooooard’!

Vintage Trains is proud to host THE POLAR EXPRESSTM in Birmingham for Christmas 2018. Prepare to experience the magic and charm of the 2004 motion picture, theatrically re-created on a steam train so that the whole family can immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of this classic children’s tale.
Commencing on Thursday November 29th, THE POLAR EXPRESSTM will depart from the festively decorated Birmingham Moor Street station for the North Pole with four trains per day.

During the journey from Birmingham city centre to the North Pole, scenes from the movie vividly come to life as dancing Chefs and Waiters arrive serving cookies and hot chocolate. The Chefs show pages from the beautifully illustrated book for the whole carriage to follow and families who bring their own copies can read along too. As the adventure continues, key elements of the story — both inside and outside the train — spring to life and on arrival at the North Pole, Santa will welcome the train with his sleigh, a bag of toys and a giant Christmas tree. After THE POLAR EXPRESSTM has slowed to a stop, Santa appears on the train! 

Guide Prices

Prices start at just £25 pounds per seat in standard class. First Class seats are also available from just £35 and include an exclusive ceramic THE POLAR EXPRESSTM mug for each ticket holder that’s not available elsewhere
