CTA’s Holiday Train begins rolling for the season

The CTA’s Holiday Train is back on the rails Friday afternoon.

It begins just after 3 p.m. departing the Midway Orange Line station.

The Holiday Train will hit every train line from Friday through Dec. 21.

For the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic, photo sessions with Santa are available. Jolly Old St. Nick rides in an open flat car while on the train.

The tradition began on the Blue Line in 2001.
