THE POLAR EXPRESS
The Great Smoky Mountains Railroad's Seasonal Service to the North Pole
In 1985, Chris Van Allsburg wrote The Polar Express, a story of a magical train ride on Christmas Eve. The train takes a young boy to the North Pole to receive a special gift from Santa Claus. "The Polar Express," published by Houghton Mifflin Company, has become a contemporary holiday classic, with over 6 million copies sold worldwide. In 2004 Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc. reunited the Academy Award-winning team of Tom Hanks and director Robert Zemeckis in an inspiring animated version. That same year GSMR began operating THE POLAR EXPRESS. Over 45,000 passengers rode THE POLAR EXPRESS with the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad in 2012.
