TRE's Winter Whistler Express arrives November 29

We all know Santa Claus is very busy, but he's taking time out of his schedule to hear children's Christmas lists firsthand aboard the Trinity Railway Express' new holiday train called the Winter Whistler Express.

Two TRE train sets will be transformed for the season to make up the holiday train and can be seen by everyone when they debut with special family events on trains traveling between 12 noon and 3 p.m. on Friday, November 29. Activities include visits from Santa and holiday carolers while traveling in comfort between Dallas and Fort Worth. The special Winter Whistler Express events are also scheduled for Saturdays (Nov. 30, Dec. 7, 14 and 21) between approximately 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Tickets will be necessary to ride on the TRE and can be purchased at platform ticket vending machines or by using the new GoPass mobile application available for free at the App Store or Google Play. Details about the app are available at

For more information and schedules visit or call DART Customer Information at 214-979-1111.
