Welcome! Please use this page for general event information, safety guidance, schedule details, and event maps to enjoy the Sugar Express Santa Train!


The Sugar Express is operating a real-life steam train to deliver hundreds of gifts to the Toys for Tots programs in Moore Haven, Clewiston, Belle Glade, and Martin County. Santa will be along for the ride to wave at children along the route from the train, and at each of the four stops, children will be able to drop off a letter for Santa and see him on his very own train car.

Elves on the Sugar Express Santa Train will also be delivering gifts for the Toys for Tots program at each of these stops. Interested parents can sign up to receive toys later in December directly from the program at: toysfortots.org.


In the interest of public safety, “social distancing” must be practiced and face coverings worn at all times to reduce the risks of exposure to COVID-19. Even Santa will be wearing a face mask, but he will be smiling and happy to see you!

When the Santa Train is stopped, we will place cones more than 6 feet apart to aid in maintaining distance, and our train is only scheduled to stop at each location for approximately 30 minutes.

Here are a few tips on how you can safely enjoy the sights and sounds of the Sugar Express Santa Train:

    • Always expect a train on any track, from any direction, at any time.

    • Stand at least 25 feet back from the railroad tracks at all times when the train is in motion.

    • Never walk on railroad tracks.

    • Observe all traffic laws and posted speed limits.

    • Hearing protection for children 12-and-under is recommended.

    • Share these tips with your friends, family, and others interested in the Sugar Express!
