'Twas the Christmas Eve train

from Detroit to Atlanta --

But just one more stop

for me and old Santa.

Down the smokestack he went,

dressed in red head to foot,

But he came out all dusty

and covered with soot.

Can you find Santa? Then look for me and the other passengers.

Take a round-trip back to the train. Can you find these railroad items?

  • John Henry and his hammer
  • Railroad "ties"
  • Hoboes
  • A cow "catcher"
  • A roundhouse
  • A timetable
  • An iron horse
  • A golden spike

Gingerbread -- it isn't just for houses anymore. Go to our next Christmas game to help A. Mouse find all sorts of gingerbread delights.
