Everyone: With Black Friday just one week away SEPTA has posted the information about the 2021 Santa Express:
www.iseptaphilly.com/santaexpress
There will just be ONE Broad Street Line train northbound from NRG/Pattison Avenue Station at 10:45 AM to
City Hall arriving at 11:00 AM making local stops enroute in South Philadelphia. The destination is to the
Holiday Market at Dilworth Plaza on the west side of City Hall.

Running just ONE Santa train this year after they were fully cancelled in 2020 shows that there is a recovery
of sorts under way - but remembering how multiple trains were once run this looks to be quite different.
It will be interesting to see the ridership and interest for this one Santa train this time around...MACTRAXX

From Chuchubob's pictures posted May 6, 2022 there is one of the five car Santa Train set that
still has its Holiday or Winter-themed wrap still in use spotted on the Broad-Ridge Spur...
