The 66th annual Santa Train made its way through 14 towns along a 110-mile route in Appalachia, Ky., on Nov. 22. Singer Kathy Mattea joined Santa to hand out 15 tons of toys and gifts to families in need. The train makes three stops in Kentucky and is co-sponsored by CSX Transportation, the Kingsport Area Chamber of Commerce and Food City.
