The Santa Express will pull into a holiday station in Madison on Dec. 1 for a family-friendly event.

Train rides with Santa Claus will depart from the Venture Out Business Center, 975 Industrial Drive, beginning at 10 a.m., followed by departures at 10:45 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 12:15 p.m., 1 p.m. and 1:45 p.m. Most of the departure times have already sold out, but limited tickets remain for the 10 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. rides. Each ride is expected to take about 30 minutes.

Organizers suggest that ticket holders arrive about 15 minutes before the scheduled departure to allow time for loading the train. Santa's Workshop, which includes refreshments and crafts, will be open from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. inside the Venture Out Business Center for guests to enjoy before departures.

Tickets cost $2 per person, and must be reserved in advance. Contact the Venture Out Business Center at (812) 273-6510 to purchase tickets.
