The Polar Express may have already left your station

Wow, a post over at Travel with Kids brought me up short; site Guide Teresa Plowright reminds us to book early to get your family onto the special Polar Express holiday train rides that often pop up in December.

Great idea, so I went over to the Web site for our local vintage train organization, the Hill Country Flyer, to see about signing up for one of their Austin-area rides.

All four of them for December 2007 are already sold out!

Talk about coal in your holiday stocking….
