It has been a long time since this guy has been on a train ride, too long. But guess who just found a train ride in Arkansas where you can meet Santa and do all kinds of Christmas stuff on a train ride for about two hours... this guy.

My grandfather was an Engineer for Southern Pacific back in my youth so trains have always had a special place in my heart. This Christmas-themed train ride is from the Arkansas & Missouri Railroad and there are three locations around the Northeast part of the state where you can ride the Holiday Express/Pajama Train.
