Christine - This is a lot of fun!  They have several special holiday trains throughout the year but the Christmas one is my fave.

Larry & Jacque - Well we don't get any snow around here in Los Angeles & Ventura counties but it does get pretty cold.

Brenda - Personally, I've never gone in my jammies but I have seen some of the kids in their jammies.

Lisa - This is a huge fave with families and kids but even us big kids can get a kick out of it.

Thx for stopping by folks; I really appreciate it.  Have a good night everyone.  :)

Good Morning Donne, This sounds like a great time. I love the Polar Express Trains. Here in NH we have one, that is it and it often is booked up a long time in advance so there is little chance to get on.  I love your picture. Have a great Thursday

Lisa - Even though I don't have kids, I will tell you that it is blast!  You don't have to be a kid to enjoy this event.  :)

Kat - Oh, it is sooo much fun!  I speak from experience when I say that! 

Scott - While these trains to get booked too, one can still get a reservation with even just a little planning.  While this weekend is booked, there are still tickets available for next week.

Thx for stopping by everyone; I really appreciate it.  Have a good day everyone and a great weekend too!  :)

Ron - I agree, half the fun is watching the kids.  They are such a trip!  :)

Tammy - I know, we are so lucky to have the Fillmore Railways because they have so many special excursions throughout the year for every holiday.  They're popular here.  :)

Gene - While the kids do have a blast, I can vouch for us big "kids" that it's just as fun for us too!

Thx for stopping by everyone; I really appreciate it.  Have a good night and a great week too!  :)
