Christmas and trains are bound together by generations of tradition. Think how festive a Christmas tree looks when a toy train is chugging around its base. And what a special treat it is when retail stores set up displays with whistling trains rolling through holiday wonderlands!

These holiday extravaganzas will delight the whole family, year after year:

Really Excited I found this on DVD! I have the original VHS at my parents' house. I am the little boy with Santa on the Hocking Valley Train! It has been about 25 years since I was in that, and still remember it to this day! Sadly Engine 33 has move away from the Hocking Valley but they have renewed their steam program which is great for visitors.

Ok.... who does not like Christmas? Trains & Christmas go together. Trains of all sizes are seen on this video. From models to the Class 1's on mainlines. The only thing missing is the biggest of them all on this video (the one that goes from New York State & Quebec to the Pacific sea coast). Very interesting and a nice touch for the season.
