Trackside 137 – The Real Polar Express HQ


Still lettered for the movie in which it starred (partially), Pere Marquette 1225 is presented here during an excursion from Owosso to Cadillac, Michigan in 2005. The big 2-8-4 is a classic example of a Lima Locomotive Works Super Power steam locomotive.

Tom Hanks – Title song of The Polar Express


Well, it’s been way over 7 years since The Polar Express hit the theaters and over 16 years since the book the movie’s based upon was released, so I felt I should better make it a tribute, just because it’s in my opinion the best Christmas movie ever made and one of the most awesome-styled movies. (I seriously LOVE this film, it totally blew me away on the big screen. Cheers, Chris A, Robert Z and Alan S, you’re all genius!) If you don’t know the lyrics: All aboard! All aboard! Tickets, please, tickets! Well? you coming? It’s a magic carpet on a rail, never takes a rest, flying through the mountains and the snow, Ride for free and join the fun, (You can ride for free!) if you just say yes! ’cause that’s the way things happen on the Polar Express You bet! “Wooo! Wooo!” the whistle blows, that’s the sound of her singing, “Ding! Ding!” the bell will ring, Golly look at her go! You wonder if you’ll get there soon, any body’s guess, ’cause that’s the way things happen on the Polar Express When we get there we’ll scream “Yes!” (“Yeah!”) We’ll arrive with a “bang bang bang”, “boom boom boom”, laughing all the way! It’s a choo-choo with a stunning view That rivals all the best! But you won’t see it advertised. It’s a simple fact we stay on track, though sometimes we digress, but that can only happen on the Polar Express! “Hiss”, “hiss” the steam hisses, that’s the sound of her breathing. “Clang! Clang!” the boiler bangs, what a wonderful show! With a comfy seat and lots to eat

How many loaded frieght cars could the Steam Engine seen on the movie Polar Express pull?

Like how long were most of the freight trains they could pull?
