Children getting first look at Santa

Polar Express picks up Santa Claus

Well folks it was the 21st of November and I am freezing at the NORTH POLE( Holland Patent) waiting for the arrival of the Polar Express Train. Just about 7:30 the train rolls up to the Christmas platform. The train stops and lets off a number of Elves and they assemble on an outside Christmas scene.They get themselves all composed as the train very slowly moves forward then stops with each train car full of all these beautiful parents and wide open eyes children. The elves start singing and waving hands and everyone on the "WARM" train join in. Out of all the excitement guess who comes out of thin air is Santa Claus himself. Well in taking pictures as one of my passions I have never seen such looks, big eyes, and eyes that say "I believe". Well I easily captured 50 some pictures of each window of the cars as they moved forward to next car.
Well after all cars stopped by the viewing area, the elves gathered up Santa and put him back on the train to meet all those children. When they arrived back in Utica there was Hot chocolate for everyone. I can post 3 pictures now, but will post 3 additional photos after. Thanks for sharing this story with me. Bruce Phelps
