Where To Catch The Holiday Train - Blue Line - December 12

Michael Hamrick - Friday, December 12, 2014

UPDATED: Here is your Detailed Schedule for Exact Times the Holiday Train will be arriving at each station on Friday December 12th so you can be sure to catch it. As a reminder, the DAMEN Ave El Station is closed. 

One of our favorite little holiday 'happenings' in the neighborhood, the CTA's Holiday Train is heading back to the Blue Line in December. The CTA has announced the schedule for the whole season across all lines and the Holiday Train will be back in our neighborhood on December 11th - December 13th.

It's always really fun to see the train heading down the tracks decorated with garland and ribbons on the inside and thousands of lights on the outside. It truly looks stunning at night. Santa and his reindeer ride the open part of the middle of the train (crazy for sure) and his elves hand out candy canes to passengers. The train is always packed which should come as no surprise but it's worth the crowd. We have a blast riding it every year. The Holiday Train runs 3pm-7pm week days and 1pm -8pm weekends. 

If you see it - and take pictures - send them our way. A full schedule for all trains is below.

Just a friendly reminder, the Damen Blue Line El Station will not be open so you won't be able to catch it there. You will be able to hop on at the Division Blue Line El Station (1200 N. Milwaukee Avenue) or the Western Station (1900N. Western Avenue).  Will follow up with a more detailed schedule when it becomes available.
