Excitement, laughter and the joy of true imagination filled the air as dozens of families of all sizes and kinds gathered at the Highland Park Metra train station Dec. 7, waiting for their turn to take a ride on the magical Polar Express.

The train took passengers on a journey to the North Pole to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus, along with Santa’s many elves.
