    This weekend we ran our 3rd annual Snowdog Express trains. We donate a portion of the proceeds to our local animal shelter.
    Here are a couple of pictures.

    Usually, I say usually, NS runs a "Santa Express" into coal country in WV. It usually consists of a loco, a couple of coaches, a boxcar, and a caboose. Santa gets off the train, at several different towns, and hands out Christmas presents and clothes to the miners' kids, so they can have Christmas, too. Not all of the coal mines are Unionized, so some miners work for just a few dollars a day. :oops: :cry:
