I've gotten lots of requests from readers who want to know if/when the CTA's Holiday Train will start. So I worked some CTA sources and learned that yes, Santa's sleigh will be riding the rails this year, though there probably won't be a sponsor. The schedule is similar to last year, starting on the Green Line on the day after Thanksgiving.
Details should be available soon.
Update: The CTA released the detailed schedule Friday morning.
Plan your trip now. These trains are always very popular and very crowded.
