REAL Polar Express Train Rides in the US
My Daughter Fell IN LOVE with The Polar Express
At age four my oldest daughter fell IN LOVE with the Polar Express. She was even more shocked when we told her that trains were real!!!
I knew that next year, even if I had to drive halfway across the country I was going to have to find THE REAL Polar Express packaged complete with a stop to the North Pole. I'm starting my search in January, 2011 - so hopefully before next Thanksgiving this lens will be complete with the ins and outs of each Polar Express (or Christmas Train) in the US.
So stay tuned and check back soon as I gather more information on all the options for real Christmas train rides to the North Pole in 2011. I'll be posting a full comparison (so if you have experience or details about one please comment so I can include these details).

Spirit of the Season
"Its the spirit of the season
you can feel it the air
you can hear it if you listen
everywhere so much care like a prayer
where ever it is you need to share it."

Toy Christmas Train Rides - Here are some of my favorite Christmas Toy Train sets.
I love this lego set! The train is adorable (but only come with half a set of tracks, so if you want to make a circle make sure to buy a second set of tracks.
Classic Children's Books for the Train Ride
Depending on what Christmas train ride you take, you could be inside the train for a while, and that could seem like an eternity to a young child that has Christmas-train-induced adrenaline. Why not make it a really special train ride, and bring along some classic holiday stories to read.
Would love to know more about where you took a train to the North Pole!
