Signs of the season-CTA Holiday Train!

One of the great holiday traditions of Chicago visited our neighborhood the Chicago Transit Authority’s Holiday Train. ¬†This train decorated with holiday lights and with an open carriage carrying Santa and his sleigh. The train is greeted at each station by families, children in strollers all looking to capture that special holiday photograph or video.
