It was a thing of beauty traveling through the night.
It thrilled little boys and girls, as well as adults.
It was such a magical sight.
It last happened in Seymour 23 years ago.
It was the “Santa Claus Express,” a train decorated for Christmas stops at communities across the Ozarks, displaying lights, music and fun.
In December, a display opens at the School Moms’ Museum & Gallery on West Market Street in Seymour featuring the Santa Claus Express, which was operated by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad company.
Pictures are on display.
There is a DVD to watch.
Regular hours at the museum are from 1 to 4 p.m. on Fridays and from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.
