The final train trip of the season was on Dec 2.  The Pocono Holiday Limited, running to Gouldsboro.  At that station, the people chose a Dickens Christmas as a theme.  Victorian Era music, costumes and characters from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, had us believe we were in Merry old England.
Above we see the train about ready to leave Scranton.  Even the tail end is decorated for the holidays.

And from the head end.  In 20 minutes or so we will be on our way.

That made for a quick trip up the line!

We ran into Ebenezer Scrooge while in town.  I guess the ghost's visits have already taken place, because he is smiling

The ghosts decided to visit with us, too.  Although I can't guess which one this is.

Not as ghostly is this quartet of carolers.

more to come...

Anyone for popcorn?

The time tells us it is about 1852.

Tiny Tim also was there.  I think he has made friends with the ghost of Jacob Marley.

Santa posing with some friends by his sleigh.  I think he might be planning a trade in on another model, though.

Instead of eight tiny reindeer, he might decide on eight 63" drivers
