The Christmas City Express, South Elgin

New to the Fox River Trolley this year, The Christmas City Express is the story of a girl's journey to visit her grandparents for Christmas, when a snowstorm unexpectedly stops the train. Will Christmas be saved? Join the museum's professional musicians, readers, entertainers and a special guest from the north for a special train trip with delicious cookies, hot cocoa, good cheer, Christmas carols, and a special gift for good boys and girls (bad boys and girls may receive fossil fuel-based items).
