Every other year, the KCS Holiday Train makes its appearance in South Central Texas. Here the train is slowing for its display in El Campo TX. The streets were clogged, as parents and kids lined up for the opportunity to go through the didplay cars and receive gifts from the elves. You can be certain that there were hundreds of smiling faces tonite. In 2019, the Holiday Express will return to the Macaroni Line from Rosenberg to Victoria. And again, there will be hundreds of smiling kids in the town.
