The 450-ton train adorned with holiday displays and 50,000 twinkling lights is embarking on its 32-city tour through six counties to entertain families and help collect toys for the needy.
Accompanied by musical performances, Santa will be the star of the trip.
The Holiday Toy Express is part of a 15-year tradition to help collect toys for the Firefighters' "Spark of Love" toy drive. Community members are encouraged to enjoy the holiday spirit by bringing unwrapped toys to the train station.
The train will arrive 7 p.m. Dec. 4.at the San Juan Capistrano train station on Verdugo Street in the Los Rios Historic District.
This year's tour will also pass through San Bernardino, Riverside, Ventura, Los Angeles and San Diego counties.
