Santa Train (2022)

The CSX Santa Train, a beloved Appalachian tradition for 80 years, returned to the rails in 2022 for the first time following two years of drive-through events necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The train once again made stops in Kentucky, Virginia and Tennessee to distribute more than 15 tons of toys and other items to excited children and their parents. The 110-mile route began at Shelby Yard near Pikeville, Kentucky, and ended at Kingsport, Tennessee. The CSX Santa Train is one of our favorite holiday traditions, and the company was proud to bring it to the neighbors in Appalachia with the support of our sponsoring partners Food City, Appalachian Power and Soles4Souls.
