Pajama-clad passengers, conductors punching tickets, and chefs serving hot chocolate board the Catskill Mountain Railroad trains reliving the enchanted experience of The Polar Express introduced to us by the Warner Bros. film inspired by the Chris Van Allsburg's beloved children's book. From November 21 through December 28, trains depart from Westbrook Station in Kingston Plaza at select times Friday through Sunday for a magical experience for passengers to ride along the sounds of the motion picture soundtrack as they make their journey to the North Pole. Memorable characters of the children's tale come to life beside Santa who will board the train to greet children and provide a special sleigh bell for all who believe.
