About

All aboard the Holiday Express! This event is a holiday favorite that offers pictures with Santa Claus, the KC Rail Experience, and Kansas City Southern Holiday Express all for free! Along with being a fast paced fun event where you will see thousands of kids light up as they go through the unique holiday village displayed inside the Holiday Express, Kansas City Southern also takes the opportunity to give back. At each scheduled stop, The KCS Charitable Fund makes a contribution of gift cards to the local Salvation Army to provide warm clothing and other necessities for children in need.
