The Mary Valley Rattler has been operating these shuttles the week before Christmas for the past 6 years and the interest from the community has been growing each year. Prices are structured to allow families to enjoy a night out at what is usually a very expensive time of the year. At $2.00 per child which includes a gift from Santa, it is certainly not a money making venture but an important service to the community. For the staff on the Rattler - all volunteers - "Our payment comes from the beaming smiles from the hundreds of children who enjoy the train ride and get to meet Santa." This is yet another example of the significant role Mary Valley Heritage Railway plays in the community.
