Thank you Peter,
Yes it exists. It exists in the hearts of all those children.
Whoever wrote the tale gave the world a treasure

Nice overview and story Joe. Never realised the express really exists. It must be fun for the kids.

This is the trailing engine, the train is a "double header". It goes up and doesn't turn around. The engineer just goes to what was the trailing engine which then goes back as the front (I guess)
I heard it only goes about half way to the canyon where there is a Santa Village for the kids. Its over an hour trip to the Grand Canyon at which time I'm sure most of the kiddos would be sound asleep









a few words and pics on Williams the town next and that should do it

No Fred, just those twilights. It was getting pretty cold and I needed to get home.
Anyway I would have to get to a pretty dark area and those neons lights are not that bright and it would be moving. It would be a pretty complex deal

But keep checking in, more photos coming

Nice additions Joseph, but by jove did you mangle the BBcode which I edited so now all the images show as intended.

You can see the April Foolishness 2021 exhibition here Another great show of the talent we have on Dyxum

You apparently made some sort of error with the markup this time since now no pictures are showing... And personally I think it is often better to add additional pictures by adding these in a followup rather than edit the original post.

Super collection of photos, Joe! Wish I could have been there! Like the lighting on the steam engine. Have they been running any steam lately there?
