    Re: 'A Christmas Carol' - Train Tour

    I so want to go to Union Station and see this, probably on Saturday (with a bazillion other people!). I'll take Metro Rail to get there and so won't have to worry about driving and parking. But I can't find any info about hours either, or where exactly it will be. Anyone else going?

    I sort of want to go, just to see the train and other things. But I really don't want to see another classic story/film/anything screwed up by Jim Carrey.

    Thanks for the info ALIASd. I'm glad to see long hours.

    SnorkletsMom I couldn't agree with you more. It's all about the train and the other stuff going on for me, not Jim Carrey.

    Re: 'A Christmas Carol' - Train Tour

    I'm definitely all about the train tour - I think it's one of the coolest promos I've seen in a really long time. They're literally bringing Christmas to every city! It doesn't stop by DC until much later in the year - sadness - so if you check it out in LA this weekend, let me know how it is!
