Santa Train takes kids on magical journey to Harrison

Santa Claus came to town a little early in Hoboken Friday, leading a special New Jersey Transit Train full of holiday cheer from Hoboken Terminal to Harrison.



Kids were treated to fun and games, along with presents.



Every year, the Railmen for Children group sets up the special trip aboard the Santa Train.



"Well the kids know that this day is for them and it's nobody's fault but sometimes when we take special education students it seems like society forgets about them," says Jim Tufano, with Railmen for Children. "It's not that they do but it's just that society moves so fast that society doesn't take the special time for them, it seems."



Railmen for Children has been sponsoring the magical trip for the last 30 years.
