Kansas City Southern's Holiday Express
The Kansas City Southern Railroad's Holiday Express train has begun its seasonal run through parts of the Midwest and the South. If you're a Christmas enthusiast or just want something free with which to entertain the kids, I highly recommend it.
Read all about it in a story we did last year.
And if you're a railfan, remember the Holiday Express is pulled by the re-powered classic streamlined passenger diesels of Kansas City Southern's current version of the Southern Belle.
As with anything like this, there can be changes so you should always check the schedule at the KCS website for updates before you plan anything.
