Flash takes Santa to town "Jingle Bells" unbelievable
Author: agrafton

Shelly Materials, SD18m, in Kent. Ohio makes an annual trip to downtown Kent bringing Santa Claus but the highlight of the trip is the playing of Jingle Bells on the train horn and "hear" it is in all it's glory.Engineer Bob Rohal is the master at the “Horn Board” a tradition going back over 18 years. Additional photos too the video shot mostly for sound and the image quality picks up towards the end.
Also there Eire833 and FEC2000 for additional photos I was limited with regards to range, look forward to their posts.

Thanks, Alan

Yes the engineer certianly does, he puts a lot into each year. Here is something to

That looks very nice. I hope Mr. FRA MP&E inspector does not issue a fine for the lights on the safety appliances.
