The Palestine Depot is asking everyone to come aboard The Polar Express train this Christmas season.
"All the parents get very much into the spirit of the whole thing. It's really neat to see the whole gang out here mom, dad, grandma, grandpa and the kids in their flannel pj's waiting to get on the train," say Earl Knoob, General Manager of the Texas State Railroad.
Bringing the classic book 'The Polar Express' to life. On the train, dancing chefs sing Christmas carols and a jolly man in a red suit gives out a special gift to all those who believe.
"I think this is something that people will remember for years and years as something they did for every Christmas," says Knoob.
