Oceanside, CA – The COASTER Holiday Express is coming to town and the North County Transit District (NCTD) is expecting it to be another popular year with guests! The family-friendly COASTER Holiday Express departs from the Oceanside Transit Center and takes passengers on a 65-minute non-stop round-trip tour down the coast and back. During the event, passengers will experience a decorated train complete with Victorian carolers singing Christmas classics, a visit from Santa Claus and his elves, and a chance to interact with the beautiful princesses. Enjoy the breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean while your kids write their wish list for Santa and play reindeer games.
