Following is the press release for the KJ's Santa Train - Photos are from last year's event. No official word but the F's have been used in the past. No passengers carried this year.

PEORIA, IL –On Saturday, December 7, 2013, Keokuk Junction Railway Co. will be operating its annual Santa Train as an
effort to provide a fun, interactive, outside the classroom educational opportunity for railroad safety that involves not only
children, but also adults. Santa Claus will join Keokuk Junction Railway Co. employees and those of other Pioneer Lines who
volunteer their time, and will make six stops along the KJRY's railroad line to visit children, provide railroad safety
demonstrations and to confirm their Christmas lists.
Our complete schedule is as follows:
• Mapleton at Mapleton Road - 8:30am arrival, 9:15am departure

Wonder if they're going to borrow another "Hawkeye Express"
car this year like the one in the attached photo.

No. Most likely the consist will be the F units and a bay window caboose.
