|Thomas Kinkade Christmas Express Train Collection|
For me, a Christmas train being special goes back to when I was a little girl. My grandfather worked for Grand Trunk, a train company. Every year we would wait in line early in the morning for hours. It was such a long line that they would serve hot chocolate and donuts while we waited for the train to arrive with Santa. The train cars leading up to Santa where decorated in a wonderful Christmas theme. On decoration I remember the most was the talking Christmas Tree. The tree would talk to people as they were going by. Then everyone would get to see Santa and get a small gift and candy.
Many years of fond memories of the train. I had checked when my kids where young and the Christmas train was no more. I look forward to hopefully see it recreated one day.
I found some good article on Squidoo on Christmas Trains. You can find even more enjoyable information about Christmas Trains.
