Students got a chance to ride on the famous Christmas train!
PITTSBURG, KS -- Students in Pittsburg had a chance to go on a field trip Wednesday that they soon won't forget. The kids hopped on on board The Polar Express train, inspired by the famous children's Christmas book. The students got to ride the train as a reward for reaching a goal for their Accelerated Reader program. They enjoyed an hour - long round trip and even had a chance to see Santa Claus.
The train used as The Polar Express was originally built in 1956 and has since been restored with hours of hard work and, of course, some Santa magic.
