It's that time of year when people start looking for the big guy in the red suit and this weekend, he's coming to Hamburg in a very special way.

Have you heard the song from The Tractors that says "Santa Claus is coming on a Boogie Woogie Choo Choo Train"?  That's the case this weekend as the big guy will be coming to Hamburg in style on a vintage train.

It's a vintage 1950s era diesel locomotive that will be bringing Santa to Artcraft Toy Trains at the corner of Scott and Union in the village of Hamburg on Saturday, December 4th between 9 and 9:30 a.m.

Of course, he's not going to just drive by though.  Santa will then head inside to meet with the kids until it's time to depart again.  They're encouraging kids to think of their wishes for Santa and parents to bring their cameras to take free pictures with him.

If this is the weekend that you'll be getting your tree and maybe setting up a train to go around it, you're going to want to check out Artcraft Toy Trains.  They've got just about everything you're going to need to get started with a train set that will last for ages in your family.  They specialize in Lionel and American Flyer trains so if your family has used either of those brands over the last couple of years and you need some parts to add to or to repair your set, you'll probably find it there!
