Holiday Express 2010

Portland's SP 4449 ran on both weekends of the Holiday Express adventure in 2010. I volunteered for Friday and Saturday of the second weekend, December 10 and 11. The weather was very wet, but hardy riders braved the storms and most trains were completely sold out. It was like a reunion meeting all of the volunteers once again, who make this happen every year. On Saturday the rain was so heavy Tom christened the inside of the tent "Six Rivers Stadium, as we had six mini-rivers running through it!
