Holiday Express or The Santa Train

Every year the Roots of Motive Power puts on a favorite long time Willits Event. Santa Claus arrives on their 1916 Heisler locomotive. They offer rides on the train along with free hot cocoa, cookies and other goodies. Then the kids get to tell Santa what they want for Christmas. They are also given a small gift to take home with them. We went yesterday and there were parents, kids and train buffs streaming through all afternoon. The rains held off and it was a fabulous event. Please check out the Roots of Motive Powers website for future events through out the year. Merry Christmas and God bless you, chris All images created with a Canon 7D and a Canon EF-s-17-85mm lens
