Take a ride back in time to the Christmas of your childhood onboard Pere Marquette 1225 in Midwest Rail Excursions Special Holiday Production. Our latest video features the Steam Railroading Institute's Steam Locomotive, Pere Marquette 1225 and higlights its North Pole Express Excursions that take place between November and December of each year. The 1225 was used for the audio as well as a visual reference for the locomotive in the Warner Brothers movie The Polar Express. Since the movies release the Steam Railroading Institute has been operating the 1225 on their famous North Pole Express trips. During these trips the 1225 hauls hundreds of families to the Village of Ashley's Country Christmas where children are able to participate in many holiday activities and of course meet Santa. We would like to thank all of the passengers who have rode on the North Pole Express Trips over the past few years and also express our gratitude and appreciation to the Voulnteers of the Steam Railroading Institute, without their dedication and hard work these trips would not be possible.
