The big part of the December events is the "Santa Train." For those trains advance tickets are available and recommended. Three weekends of sold-out, diesel powered trains. And they have Thursday and Friday evening Christmas themed "pajama trains."

The operation of the Eureka is done on these weekends without any advance ticketing. This is an extra part of the overall event that includes a craft fair and a modular model railroad. To ride behind the Eureka, one only has to present themselves at the base of the stairway to the flatcar with the benches. No charge, but a contribution to defray costs is asked for. No formal schedule other than 10am to 4pm and trips made when the engineer and the flat car are ready.

Dan and his wife and friends have operated the Eureka these weekends for a good number of years. It has become a get-away time for Dan and his wife. She has called it their "train-cation" (think train vacation).
