    Since the movie Polar Express, Christams trains modeled on the Polar Express have become almost as big as Thomas for museum fund raising efforts. Not just museums, but shortline railroads and even some Class I's have joined the effort.  Bob and Elizabeth will talk about many of these activities on Saturday's show.  In addition to talking about many of these trains, we'd like to hear about what is taking place in various parts of the country.  Please call us with your activities at 646-716-7106 or join us on the web at www.letstalktrains.com.  The show starts at 10:00 AM Pacific/1:00 PM Eastern.
