The Santa Claus Express is a generic name applied to a number of holiday railroad excursions throughout the United States. Often sponsored by railroad museums and incorporating appropriately decorated vintage locomotives and cars, the Santa Claus Express may offer scenic tours beginning in late November and continuing through December. By other schedules, the Express stops at towns and villages along the line, at which time professional or amateur performers aboard provide a Yuletide concert or show for citizens awaiting outside. The Santa Claus Express also is a vehicle for delivering toys and gifts to underprivileged children, an example of which can be found in Appalachia. Since the mid 1440s on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, officials of CSX Transportation have furnished a locomotive and cars so that the Santa Claus Express could wind its way from Pikeville, Kentucky, across Virginia, and into Kingsport, Tennessee. All along the tracks, children and families gather, many having camped overnight to secure strategic positions. When the train slows at each whistle stop, children run behind as Santa, who addresses everyone as darlin, and his assistants, local businessmen, toss candy, small toys, and other gifts from the platform on the last car into eager hands. Local merchants, some of whom were once among those children chasing the train, donate the gifts, which become the only Christmas presents that many children in this region will receive each year.

Always wrap your Christmas ornaments individually in 24 Anti Tarnish Tissue Paper Sheets and pack your ornaments securely in a sturdy shallow storage box. One layer of Christmas ornaments is ideal. The Christmas ornaments should have an ornament storage box made of very sturdy paper cardboard. Plastic bubble wrap or plastic bags trap the off-gassing from PVC paint finishes and prevents proper air ventilation. Christmas ornaments should be wrapped lightly in acid free protective tissue paper. Your Unique Christmas Ornaments should be stored in a climate that is constant and not too humid or hot in temperature, with adequate ventilation. If you are instructed to use acid-free tissue paper make sure that you are buying and using acid free tissue paper, ordinary craft tissue paper does have acid in it.
