The Holiday Magic Train is a partnership between the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission and Metro transit, and this is the fifth year the train has traveled along the Red and Blue MetroLink Lines to bring holiday cheer to thousands of area commuters. The train is decorated with garland, lights and ornaments, snowflakes on the windows and big holiday wreaths adorning the front and back of the train.
The cost of a Holiday Magic Train concert is a ticket to ride. Metro customers can board at any MetroLink station along the way with a valid ticket or Metro pass.
