Santa riding the rails on Chicago's Holiday Train

CHICAGO – Santa Claus and his reindeer are riding the rails around Chicago again this year, and passengers are invited to join them.

The Chicago Transit Authority's Holiday Train features six cars pulling Santa and his helpers in their sleigh.

Customers may ride inside the cars, which are decorated in multi-colored lights, garland and bows and feature holiday music.

Now in its 21st year, the Holiday Train will travel along all CTA rail lines throughout November and December.

Detailed timetables are posted online at transitchicago.com/holidaytrain.

Normal CTA fares apply.
