The Holiday Express Train will roll into town next week and we’ve got all the information you need to know to tour the train. Kansas City Southern’s 18th annual Holiday Express train includes a stop in Sallisaw – the only stop in the state of Oklahoma.
The Holiday Express Christmas train rolls into town at 4 p.m. next Thursday, Dec. 6, and will be stopped at West Port Arthur Place. While the event is free and open to the public, tickets will be available at any of the bank locations in Sallisaw for Arvest, Armstrong Bank, Firstar Bank and National Bank of Sallisaw, at Dr. Aubrey Henshaw’s Aesthetic Dental Institute, at Dr. Chris Orendorff’s Premier Primary Care office, at the chamber office and also at the Mix 105.1.
Since KCS expects close to 4,000 visitors, chamber officials are encouraging everyone to get a ticket and honor the time slot your ticket says to arrive.
Parking will be available in the west Port Arthur train yard, at the Old Sallisaw middle school, the nearby Sallisaw soccer fields and the Apostolic Faith Church. Members of the fire department will assist in parking cars.
Train officials will stay as long as needed so that everyone in line gets to tour the train.
