The Santa Train ...

Well, for the first year we actually made a point of trying to hook up with the CTA's "Holiday Train" ... this is an annual thing that the CTA employees do, an El train all decked up with holiday lights, "special" fake ads, "elves" handing out candy canes, and even Xmas-themed upholstery. The most amazing part of it, though is the flat-bed car with Santa, etc. ...

Must be freaky for Santa when the train goes through the subway portions of the route ... I did notice that it was moving a lot slower than usual, though. Unfortunately, most of my shots ended up way blurry ... got this one when we finally got off to head back home.
