How bout that! All the good upper car seating was double booked so we were shifted to what looked like a 737 with no wings brought in from a wrecking yard. Remember when we ordered our tickets NO REFUNDS, well that's right train riders. My tickets were near $400.00 for me and my grandchildren bucko and we were shifted to the new pink flag with great expectation it was just as good as the upper birth. We had a hopping cook splashing cocoa everywhere, Ill hung garland, and we were in airplane seats. Yes...airplane seats where we couldn't even sit together. Instead of the scenic Christmas scenes from years past we counted semi trucks that passes our airplane/train wreck. and the topper was with all this global warming there was no snow at the n. pole. I would have personally donated all my white socks, t-shirts and undies to throw on the ground for a white effect. I knew as soon as we stepped on that wreck of whatever I had been duked. No lighting, and our story teller couldn't tell what page we were on. BUT the best was every time the conductor came by and asked how our separated group of holiday polar expresses were doing I'd say not so swell, and he would kindly reply have a nice trip. The best is still to come but I need a massage.4736
