Santa's Challenger was a November 1992 train , and showed remarkable cooperation between the Union Pacific and CSX. Challenger 3985 traveled from Wyoming to Kentucky and Tennessee to power the annual Santa Claus train. It was renumbered and relettered in Huntington, WV as Clinchfield 676 since the UP engines were nearly identical. Our coverage shows the preparations in Kingsport the day before the Santa train operation, which includes loading the goodies on the train. Then we see the train depart heading north. The main event of course is the next day as we see the Santa Train in all its glory powered by the largest steam engine in the world. On the rear platform of the train is Santa and his helpers and they throw gifts and candy off the rear of the moving train to folks along the route between Shelby,KY and Kingsport, TN. There are stops made at some towns, like St. Paul where we get some good views of the action and Santa.

Once Again Got This From Santa This Year. Surprisingly Though, The Re-edited & Shortend Version Was In Restored Quality. At The End, There Are Trailers That Focused On The Union Pacific, & The New River Gorge. The First Trailer Shows An Upcoming Dvd "Challenger Goes East". By The Way Do You See The Simpson Family During The 1992 Parade?
