2017 K.C.S. ‘Holiday Express’ Scheduled Stops


Time for the annual running of the K.C.S. Railroad’s “Holiday Express”. The six-car train carrying Santa and his Elves will swing through the Ark-La-Tex again in 2017, but the closest stop to Texarkana is in Ashdown on December 6.

The stop in Ashdown will be at Main and Hwy 71 beginning at 4:00 pm.

The Holiday Express was created in 2001 as volunteers dedicated more than 8,000 hours to transform retired rail cars. Today, these cars feature a smiling tank car named Rudy; a flatcar carrying Santa’s sleigh, reindeer and a miniature village; a gingerbread boxcar; the elves’ workshop; a reindeer stable; and a little red caboose.

In addition, at each scheduled stop, a charitable contribution is made to the local Salvation Army to provide warm clothes and other necessities for children in need.
