The following day I reported to the "tent" at Oaks Park to help with concession sales as the third and final weekend of Holiday Express trains commenced. It took us a while to get all the stock out and displayed, jackets, tee and sweat shirts, DVDs, hats, pins, books, toys, and all kinds of stuff. The trains were to operate at 10 and 11 AM, Noon, then at 2, 3, and 4 PM, 7, 8 and 9 PM. SP&S 700 would haul all Holiday Express trains this year, as 4449 was not operable. I only worked the morning shift and headed home. Photos from the two days follow.
700 steamed up outside the ORHC on Thursday.
