holiday express

Dec. 10 - Siloam Springs - Jefferson Street - 4pm

This is a FREE event, open to the public and no tickets are required.

The six-car train allows guests of all ages to board three cars that are filled with holiday displays.  Among the displays are Santa’s sleigh, reindeer, a miniature village, the elves’ workshop, a “smiling tank car named Rudy” and a gingerbread boxcar. Visits with Santa will happen on the train’s caboose.

Entry is free and open to the public, and the length of each visit is dependent on crowd size.

What will I see at a Holiday Express stop?
The train is a spectacle both inside and out. It is comprised of six cars, three of which can be toured. In the caboose, visitors can visit with Santa Claus. After walking through two more cars filled with displays, children will receive a free gift bag.

Can I ride the Holiday Express train?
The train is available for tours at each scheduled stop, but is not available for rides.

Do I need tickets to board the Holiday Express? How much does it cost?
The Holiday Express train is free and open to the public. No tickets are needed. Passage through the train is available on a first come first served basis.

How long is the train open at each stop?
The start time is available on the published schedule. In most cities, we do not list an end time on the schedule, because it is dependent on the crowd size and weather. We will make every effort to keep the train open as long as there are visitors in line.

Is the Holiday Express handicapped accessible?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to bring a wheel chair on board the train. However, kindly notify one of our elves of your circumstances, and we will either help you board the train, or Santa Claus will make a special visit outside the train.

How can I request that the Holiday Express stop in my community?
Once published on our website, the Holiday Express schedule is firm. To request that your community be considered for a future Holiday Express stop, send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The train is not stopping in my community, but will pass through. How can I find out what time it will come through my community?
Unfortunately, we can't say. Holiday Express movements are scheduled around our freight trains.

Are there any volunteer opportunities?
The Holiday Express would not be possible without our generous "elves" volunteers. To inquire about opportunities in your community, send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

What do charitable contributions to the Holiday Express support?
Each year, KCS receives charitable contributions from its employees, vendors and friends. These contributions are used to purchase gift cards, which are divided amongst the communities where the Holiday Express train is scheduled to stop and donated to the Salvation Army to provide warm clothing and other necessities for children in need.

Where do the gift cards go if there is not a Salvation Army in the community where the Holiday Express stops?
The Salvation Army is divided into districts and works with local organizations in each community to see that the gift cards are distributed where needed.
