Holiday TrainFest & Toy Drive at LA Union Station

December 16 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Celebrate the spirit of the season while also giving back to the community during the Holiday TrainFest and Toy Drive at Los Angeles Union Station!

The free, family-friendly event will run from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m on Saturday, December 16th on Track 14 at Los Angeles Union Station. Attendees are invited to enjoy highlights such as holiday refreshments, a visit from Santa Claus, vintage rail cars, and an 874,346-pound steam locomotive decked out for the holidays.

During the festivities, staff will be on hand to collect donations of new, unwrapped toys in support of Toys for Tots as well as brand new socks that will be donated to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority. Last year, at the first Holiday TrainFest more than 1,200 toys were collected during the four-hour event. This year’s event will continue to provide opportunities to brighten spirits and support those in need during the holidays.

This year’s Holiday TrainFest will feature:

  • The historic Santa Fe 3751 steam locomotive for attendees to get up close and personal with;
  • Vintage rail cars from the 1940s and 1950s decorated for the holidays for guests to tour;
  • Amtrak® and Metrolink train cars to explore;
  • Holiday refreshments, including hot cocoa and cookies;
  • Local police, and firefighters with a vintage 1930s-era fire engine;
  • Holiday music;
  • And of course, Santa Claus!

Arrive to the event in style by train from points throughout southern California, including Orange County, Ventura County, San Bernardino and the Antelope Valley using Amtrak Pacific Surfliner or Metrolink service.
