Families can take a spirited journey on the Virginia & Truckee Railroad in Virginia City, Nev. The annual holiday train takes a 50-minute roundtrip ride to the Gold Hill Depot and back with sweet treats, hot cocoa, singing elves and, of course, Santa making an appearance.

Trains run Nov. 29 and 30, and Dec. 7, 8, 14 and 15 at noon or 2 p.m. from the Virginia & Truckee Railroad depot on F Street.
