Mail Letters to Santa at the Railroad Post Office

Letters to Santa

Hey Kids, letters can be mailed to Santa through the mail slot on the Railroad Post Office (RPO). A staircase has been put in place leading up to the mail slot on the side of the RPO, which is the long green rail car that sits near the St. Johns Depot. Children can mail their letters any time before Christmas, and no postage is necessary since these letters will travel by North Pole Express.

Railroad Post Office Looking Good!

Progress on the RPO Car

Just in time for the holidays, a grand make-over was given to the south side and ends of the 1903 RPO, thanks to wonderful support from Joel Haviland of J.H. Builders, Josh Redman of Redman Construction and the Volunteer Railroad Crew members.

Last Sunday is now Past.

Well, Jenny and Gary arrived at the depot about a half hour early, just to get some things set up, but right away people started showing up and it stayed that way until almost 2:30. Jenny was busy showing off the depot, Gary out with the Jerry Banks layout or in the cars teaching and learning. The standbys, Bret, John, Dominic, Garret and escorts were there to attend to the tracks and repairs.
