Are you surprised?
Not the usual transportation for St. Nicholas.
This wonderfully orchestrated event happens every year, in the small town near where I live.

Can you hear the train horn tooting and the signals clanging as the train approaches the Depot? And there is Santa, standing on the front, waving to the wide-eyed children.
The excitement begins as Santa steps off the train.
HO! Ho! Ho!...and, jingle all the way!
One of Santa's helpers.... showing him the way.
The group of children, with parents, follow Santa into the train depot.
The boys and girls line up inside, eagerly awaiting their turn to sit on Santa's lap.
(The view is looking through the depot window)
