UP North Polar? Metra adds holiday train to Union Pacific North rail line
Metra has added a sixth holiday train to run in mid-December featuring Santa and Mrs. Claus.
That means on specific Saturdays in December, special holiday trains will run across six rail lines — including Metra Electric, BNSF, Milwaukee District West, Rock Island, Union Pacific Northwest and the newly included Union Pacific North, Metra said in a statement.
Tickets to the Union Pacific North holiday train, which is scheduled to run on Dec. 16, cost $5 and will go on sale at 7 a.m. Thursday.
