20th Anniversary KCS Holiday Express Will Benefit Salvation Army in 20 Communities

KCS will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its KCS Holiday Express program and partnership with The Salvation Army with a fundraiser to benefit the Salvation Army in 20 communities on its U.S. rail network. Due to the pandemic, KCS will not operate its Holiday Express train, which traditionally draws large crowds in free, public events. See a KCS Holiday Express video here.

KCS is pleased to celebrate 20 years of its Holiday Express program benefiting The Salvation Army in communities throughout our U.S. rail network, said KCS president and CEO Patrick J. Ottensmeyer. While it is not safe to gather for free visits with Santa Claus and tours of the Holiday Express train this year, the need for the charitable component of this program is greater than ever.
