Watching the movie starring Tom Hanks has become a holiday tradition for many of us, and it will no doubt appear on TV a few times this holiday season. And kids can experience a very real Polar Express right here in East Texas this weekend.

The Texas State Railroad will have the Polar Express running in Palestine, and kids can even wear their PJ's to really get into the spirit.

The Texas State Railroad says the Polar Express Train Ride departs at 3:45pm, 5:15pm, 6:45pm and 8:10pm from the Palestine Depot today through Sunday.

Nov. 22-24
