Christmas Caboose ...

as it does for all who truly believe."

A red caboose festooned in its Christmas finery
greets train goers on their way to boarding 
The Christmas Train on the Hawk Mountain Line
in early December at WK&S (Wanamaker, Kempton & Southern, Inc.)
Railroad, Kempton, Pennsylvania.

The Hawk Mountain Line is a scenic ride of six-and-a-half
miles on track of the old Reading Railroad, running along
the Ontelaunee Creek, through the farms and woods of
Berks and Lehigh Counties.
