Polar Express Chugs into Town

By Deandra Corinthios. CREATED Nov 24, 2012

ASHWAUBENON, WI--A Christmas icon chugs into northeast Wisconsin this weekend.

The Polar Express is at the National Railroad Museum in Ashwaubenon.

Families experience a dramatic reading of the polar express story, a train ride and Santa Clause.

The event is so popular, tickets are already sold out.

"Those who know the story or who have seen the movie have the chance to almost be like they're in that particular movie. They're taking part in a lot of the same activities that you would see in the story itself," said executive director of the museum, Jacqueline Frank.

If you want to see the Polar Express, mark your calendar now. Tickets for next year's Polar Express go on sale July 25 2013.
