The Polar Express Train Ride At the Colorado Railroad Museum

The stunned look on Everett's face when the Polar Express pulled into the Colorado Railroad Museum is an expression and memory I will always treasure. We watched a musical show in the heated train depot while drinking hot cocoa and eating cookies before the train pulled into the station.
