Metrolink's Holiday Toy Express

Sadly, there has been little publicity for the Metrolink Toy Train which has been dubbed "450 Tons of Family Fun - the Holiday Toy Express!"

Metrolink's Holiday Toy Express has been delighting audiences for nine years – providing a free, enjoyable, community-based holiday experience across five Southern California counties.
The Holiday Toy Express, a 450-ton Metrolink train decorated with giant glittering ornaments, animated displays, and more than 50,000 twinkling lights, will make four stops in the City of Los Angeles.

Arriving with lights aglow and filling the night with toe-tapping tunes, the Holiday Toy Express offers a free live musical stage show for those at each stop. Following the show, children of all ages have the opportunity to meet Santa and his friends when they alight from the train.

Additionally, the Holiday Toy Express supports Southern California Firefighters' Spark of Love Toy Drive, which collects and distributes toys to needy children.

Audience members are encouraged to share their holiday spirit by bringing a new unwrapped toy or sporting good to donate to this worthy cause.

So come enjoy the Holiday Toy Express, meet the men and women of the LAFD and support the Spark of Love Toy Drive, all at a Metrolink Station near you!

Maybe the media is too stupid to figure out that the people love this train. On Saturday night in Simi Valley about 6,000 people waited for the train. The crowd was so huge that they had to do the play twice so that everyone could see.

Where was the Daily News or Times when the train came through the Valley stops that night?

Maybe they'll catch it this weekend in Burbank. . .but I doubt it. It's good news, so why bother.
