Metrolink Holiday Toy Express Comes to Baldwin Park

The festive train, decorated in thousands of lights, is scheduled to arrive in Baldwin Park on Sunday.

Metrolink Holiday Toy Express is coming to the Baldwin Park Metrolink Station at Pacific Avenue and Bogart Avenue on Sunday. The train was expected to arrive about 7:45 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. 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.
