Ride the Holiday Lights Train on Georgetown Loop Railroad and more

SOLDOUT: the 4:50PM Holiday Lights train ride is full, however the Georgetown Christmas Market is still a go are all.

Join the Beckwourth Doers meetup members on the Georgetown Loop Railroad's Holiday Lights Train. The heated railroad cars and trees alongside the tracks will be lite up in holiday lights. On board the train will be Christmas songs synchronized to the holiday lights.

Before the holiday lights train ride, I plan to attend the Georgetown Christmas Market in the town of Georgetown at 2:30PM to take in all the holiday activities:

* Outdoor European Marketplace
* FREE Holiday Entertainment
* Hot Roasted Chestnuts
* Horse-Drawn Wagon Rides
* Appearances by St. Nicholas
* Santa Lucia Children’s Procession
* Christmas Museum Tours
* High Tea at Grace Hall

Visit the Christmas Market website for more details.

If you are interested in participating in both the Christmas Market and the Georgetown Loop Holiday Lights Train ride and want to caravan, I'm leaving from the Wooley Mammoth RTD park & ride at 1:30PM to allow time to visit the Christmas Market before checking in at the railroad station at 4:30PM

    My mother-in-law Sybil used to go to Georgetown for their marvelous Christmas events every year. We were hoping to take her again, but she's not up to it now. We're sorry to miss this colorful holiday event. We're spending the day with her in town instead.

    Have a marvelous merry memorable time!

    Okay, last post I promise! Unfortunately the entire train is now sold out for the 4:30 time slot, sans ONE Parlor seat. That said I will not be able to attend for that slot as I have a companion with me. You might want to change your RSVP settings to reflect this.

      Will do Winston! We decided to do our own thing. FYI.

      Hi, some people missed registering for the now sold out Holiday Lights train ride at 4:50PM some are instead doing the 2:00PM Christmas Market Crawl. Maybe you could consider the crawl, which Elana is participating in that afternoon. Contact Elana via meetup messaging for details and I'll send you some more information about the crawl.

      We'll see you on the Bear Lake snow shoe activity on Sunday. Jeff included one other person as a guest which is you. So far, I have 7 person snow shoeing on that day.

    Sorry for the 3rd post. It appears that only the Parlor tickets are available for the 4:30 train. I'm going to check with my companion first to see if the cost is okay.

      Hope you can still make it on the holiday lights train ride, if the parlor price is OK and not sold out.

    Hi Winston. Are you doing the coach or parlor car?

    December 11, 2013

    • Winston W.

      Hi, Elana, I will be in the coach.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
