Santa will once again trade his sleigh for the steel and chrome
of a CTA car this year, delighting kids and befuddling newcomers
aboard the 19th annual Holiday Train, CTA officials announced
The train will make its debut on Saturday, Nov. 20 on the Red
and Purple lines, and will hit all CTA lines throughout November
and December. See the full schedule below.
The flamboyantly festive train, decked out with colored lights,
bows and garland and arriving to a stream of holiday music, has
become a holiday staple in Chicago -- and goes a long way toward
scrounging up some good cheer during those cold nights and mornings
spent on an El platform.
