Santa's First Stop: Comstock Park

As he has for the past seven years, Santa began his train tour in Comstock Park as he travelled through West Michigan aboard the Marquette Rail.  The train arrived punctual at 9:30 a.m. and after spreading good will and handing out candy canes, Santa Clause,  Mrs. Clause and their entourage and helpers left just as punctual at 9:50 a.m. for locations further west and north. Those who wanted to get out of the snow for a while had the opportunity to tour the home of the Grand Rapids Model Train Association which is located in the Old Train Depot building behind Dwight Lydell Park.

Some of the model train displays - this the Hudsonville Station as it existed

And here comes the Santa Train!
