Holiday Event: December 21

Great River Rail to participate in Union Depot European Christmas Market and Northstar Holiday Train Event on December 21

Great River Rail - November 23, 2019

As part of the annual "Hub for the Holidays" events series, Union Depot in Saint Paul is once again hosting the European Christmas Market on weekends in December. As a special gift, the Northstar Holiday Train will be making a festive and free trip to Union Depot on December 21.

Metro Transit and BNSF provide this great service that will bring riders all the way from Big Lake to Union Depot in Saint Paul where riders can enjoy the market for two hours before making the return trip. The train will not stop at the Target Field Station in order to provide a direct route to Union Depot.

Great River Rail will be on hand to provide information on the TCMC Second Train project and participate in the fun.

More information and a detailed schedule of stops can be found at Metro Transit.
