The Festival Express - News and Weather For The Quad Cities -

The Festival Express


I hear the train a comin. The Festival Express is always a main attraction at the annual Festival of Trees.

This year, the train is featured in a living room scene, running on about 150 feet of track.

Kevin Baugh is one of the engineers from KJWW in Rock Island who helped with the layout. He says setting up the train helps to usher in the Christmas season.

There are hundreds of lights, stockings hung by the chimney, a carousel, and even a 36 foot tall Christmas tree included in this exhibit.

Jayme Smothers from KJWW says they've been working on this for two weeks.

Children get the chance to sound the train whistle and  operate the controls.

All aboard on the Festival Express!
