Santa will trade in his sleigh for an antique streetcar to kick off Santa Trolley at the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum. Santa will arrive at 10 a.m. on a bright green caboose pulled by ARMCO diesel B-73, a vintage 1930 engine which is the oldest operating diesel locomotive in the United States. Enjoy caroling and the scenic view from a beautifully restored vintage streetcar. Santa Trolley is 10 a.m.-5 p.m. (last trolley with Santa leaves at 4 p.m.) Dec. 7-8 and 14-15, followed by complementary hot chocolate and snacks, and a craft for children. Admission is $10 for adults, $9 for seniors (62+) and $7 for children ages 1-15; children under 1 are free (includes trolley rides and exhibits). Advanced reserved tickets are encouraged. In addition, Trolleys and Toy Trains will be on display in the Visitor Education Center from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Dec. 6 and 13, featuring a multi-leveled Lionel toy train layout. The final public day for 2013 is Dec. 15, after which the museum will be closed until April 4, 2014. Bring an unwrapped toy with a minimum value of $10 for Toys for Tots, through Dec. 15, and receive a $5 gift certificate to the Museum Store.
