Santa and Mrs. Claus will make their annual journey through Southeast Arkansas December 8 on the Arkansas Midland Railroad, making stops in Warren, Monticello, Dermott and McGehee. There will be festivities, refreshments and toys at each stop. A nonprofit tradition, the Santa Train was started in 1996 by a Midland Railroad employee who wanted to incorporate two things children love: Santa Claus and trains, while also doing something positive in the areas the railroad serves.
