Metrolink Holiday Toy Express Comes to Claremont

The festive train, decorated in thousands of lights, is scheduled to arrive in Claremont on Sunday. But if you can't make it, we give you the train's full schedule.

Metrolink Holiday Toy Express is coming to the Claremont Train Depot at Harvard Avenue and First Street on Sunday.

The train was expected to arrive about 6:30 p.m.

This is the 16th anniversary of the Holiday Toy Express. And Metrolink is celebrating with a bigger train, more decorations and a new show, according to Claremont city officials said. They will also be collecting toys for the California Firefighters' "Spark of Love" toy drive.

The Holiday Toy Express is described as a 450-ton Metrolink train decorated with giant glittering ornaments, animated displays, and more than 50,000 twinkling lights.

The train travels to Metrolink station cities throughout Southern California presenting a free live musical stage show at each stop, officials said. Children will have the opportunity to meet Santa and his friends after the show, officials said.
