Ontario Northland and Charities from practically every stop along ONR team up and run a special train called "The Santa Claus Express". The train's job is to take kids on a short ride to pick up Santa Claus, who then boards and rides back to town with the kids. Seen here, the Cochrane Edition of the 2001 Santa Claus Express loads up for the trip west on the Kapuskasing Subdivision to Driftwood where Santa is waiting to board November 2001.
