November 10, 2010 (Campo) -- In association with Santa Claus, the Pacific Southwest Railway Museum in Campo announces the sixth annual North Pole Limited Christmas Trains. Rides begin Thanksgiving weekend on November 26 and run through December 18.


The fun begins at the lighted Campo Depot with fun and good cheer. Once the Limited leaves theDepot Santa's Elves will serve cookies and hot chocolate. The Elves will visit with the passengers as the Limited rockets toward the North Pole. An on-board book reading of a famous train Christmas story leads up to the magical arrival at Santa's Workshop. Santa will board the train for the return trip to Campo and visit with all children on the train.

The Elves invite the children to wear their pajamas, just make sure they're dressed warmly!
