Scenes from Santa Train

Santa Train has been a Northwest tradition since 1969.  This year more than 11,000 guests will ride a vintage train, enjoy a hot cocoa and Krustez cookies baked in an authentic army kitchen car range, and visit with Santa.  Younger visitors may enjoy a gift from Santa, or perhaps some coal . . . And for some families who have enjoyed Santa Train for 20, 30 or even more years, every year brings something new and memorable, yet the experience is infinitely repeatable.  Here are a few unique "wintery" images to enjoy from this year's Santa Train!
