Happy Smiling Elves in Chicago

@taffy and I endured some rather cold temps to catch the Christmas Train. Something we had both heard about, but never captured before. It runs from the day after Thanksgiving until the 23rd December, but on different routes each day. We waited about 15 minutes for a few minutes of fun. One more to cross of the list! Check out @taffy shot here https://365project.org/taffy/365/2019-12-10#comment-30797136 for a very different shot than this.

I have been away for a short break in Ireland, thanks for all of your comments, I hope to catch up with you all soon!
I like the happy elf! Will link to yours shortly!

Ah, you really captured the sense of Christmas Train. Never seen one although I've heard of them so maybe next year I'll have to join you.

@jyokota I think it has taken me 5 years to actually shoot this. The CTA posts a schedule, I only discovered that this year.

He looks like a very cheerful elf. It's quite funny that no-one on the platform seems the least bit fazed that he's there.

What a cool train. Did it eventually have to pass this stop?
