Description:  For several years, SCL trains 587 & 588 (The Wadley Turn) operated a Santa Train on the last Saturday before Christmas. As I prepared my Lines South article about the Manchester, Georgia based Santa Train, I realized that I needed a much better illustration than my photos. Jim Matuska captured the spirit of the train perfectly by using a compilation of my photos, taken over several years, of this annual train. Thank you, Jim and Merry Christmas - Bernie
