Santa Is Here!! Santa Is Here!!

The title was the words from the kids as Amtrak #3  “Southwest Chief” slowed to a stop. After regular passengers stepped off the train. Santa greeted the crowd with a hearty HO HO HO Merry Christmas. Everyone cheered and Santa, Mrs. Claus and the “elves” made their way inside the station. Santa and Mrs. Claus to their places near the tree and started making lists of the kids wishes.

Before the train came. Mary Meyer read Christmas stories to children in the office. I took this photo early on but the room filled up well as soon as the word got out.

The NEMO Model Railroad Association was on hand in their train room running trains for the guests. As usual this was a hit. There were about 8 trains running at one time. The members answered questions as fast as they could.

A good time was had by everyone. Santa and Mrs. Claus are now back at the North Pole getting ready for next week. Thank You to all who came and those who helped us with this unique event.
