In addition, the KCS Holiday Express project will continue its tradition of charitable giving.
The train’s only local stop will be in Pittsburg, Kansas at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10th at the Elm and Monroe Street intersection.
The KCS Holiday Express is free to the public at all of its stops.
Over 21 years, the charitable component of the KCS Holiday Express project has raised well over $2.6 million
The KCS Holiday Express was built on the tradition of the Santa Train, which ran on a segment of the network bought by KCS in 1997.
