Santa Claus has been known to use many modes of transportation to travel to all corners of the globe during the Christmas season. RIght here on the North Fork, we’ve seen him arrive by sleigh, horse-drawn carriage, hay truck, a convertible sports car, boat, helicopter and motorcycle. So it’s no surprise St. Nick would arrive at the Railroad Museum of Long Island by rail car, as he did yesterday to the delight of kids of all ages at the museum’s holiday open house.

The event continues today, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is free. Santa arrives at noon.

The Railroad Museum of Long Island is located at 416 Griffing Avenue in Riverhead, right next to the railroad tracks.
