Santa Train tickets sold out fast, again

The Santa Train were gone in no time Monday, especially online.

All 3,605 online tickets were gone in four minutes, seven minutes faster than last year, said Mark Roeber of the Virginia Railway Express.

The remaining tickets (about 3,900) were sold at four vendor locations. Those were all gone by 12:30 p.m.

The trains will run on Dec. 8 out of four stations, including the Leeland Road station in Stafford.

Roeber noted possible confusion on the time the Woodbridge train will leave. When the online tickets were sold, the information said the train would leave at 9:30 a.m., but it leaves at 10:30 a.m., which is what the tickets say.
