Santa traded his sleigh this year for an old-fashioned trolley at the National Museum of Transportation in Kirkwood. Last weekend, families flocked to the museum to see live reindeer, check out trains — both real and model — and hop aboard the Holly Jolly Trolley to tell Santa their Christmas wishes.

Also on display was the E. Desmond Lee Holiday Train exhibit, the region’s largest indoor holiday train display.
