Today's Train of Thought- Upon A Midnight Clear; December 18, 2009

Decked out with a wreath and Christmas lights, Marquette Rail GP38-2 #2635 strikes a stark outline against the wintry night sky as contributor Steven McKay caught the blue and white EMD idling on a chilly December 12, 2009 evening in Stronach, MI. The 2635 is in charge of the company's annual Santa train- a caboose hop where St. Nick pays a visit to the kids of all the towns along the line, passing out candies and small gifts.
The Santa Train is something of an ongoing tradition that several different railways of all sizes across the USA and Canada take part in each December.
