Sasser- The Holiday Express is back on the tracks and made it first stop in Sasser Friday night.

Jordan Wells rushed in from Columbus with her family to catch the train and see Santa.

"And she came home and informed us that she would like to see Santa face to face and go to the North Pole on a train," Wells said.

 That was after she saw The Polar Express on the big Screen.

"Because it looked cool," said Jordan.

Santa's holiday express will be choo-chooing through Southwest Georgia all weekend.

"It's just a community service, so there's no charge, so we'd like to have people come out and fill up the seats on the train," said Terry Little of the Georgia Southwestern Railroad.

If you're still feeling Bah-humbugish, a little time on the train might help.

"Because we have Santa and he's a real jolly guy and excited to do it," Little said.

As for Jordan and her brother, it was worth the trip to catch the ride.

 "It was the first time I've ever been on a train," said Jackson.

"Definitely worth the trip just to see them get excited," Wells said.

So catch the Holiday Express before it pulls out of the station and Santa is out of sight.

The Holiday Express begins Saturday in Smithville at 8:30 a.m. and runs through the weekend.
