The Santa Train didnít have room for Jolly Old St. Nick this year, as every seat was filled to capacity. Instead, Santa greeted guests at the ticket depot as they picked up their boarding passes. Pictured here, Bentlee Morris, 2, manages to whisper a few Christmas wished to Santa before being called to board the Arkansas-Missouri train, which traveled to Exeter on Saturday afternoon before returning to Monett. Guests were treated to hot chocolate and sugar cookies during the ride. Melonie Roberts/reporter@monett-times.com

Wyatt Tuberville, Makayle Morris and Addison Tuberville handed over their boarding passes to Conductor Nick Walker and Alex Holtby for Saturdayís trip on the Santa Train to Exeter. The Santa train served as a fundraising event to benefit For the Kids, an organization that provides clothing and necessities for foster and adoptive grandparents in the 39th Circuit in southwest Missouri. Guests on the Arkansas-Missouri train taking part in the holiday event were treated to hot chocolate and sugar cookies. Melonie Roberts/reporter@monett-times.com
