Christmas Train with Flags

Everyone loves trains at Christmas time. In this vintage train postcard we see passengers dressed in Victorian clothing headed somewhere – to visit family and friends.

It strikes the imagination with wonder – Where are they going? Whom will they visit? Will it snow? Will there be a grand Christmas tree and a party? Children of all ages wonder when they see a picture like this.

This early 1900s image of people gathering in the station and riding an old-fashioned locomotive and train home for the Christmas holidays gives that sense of wonder and excitement. It’s not too cold with slight snow in the background and red, white, and green flags for festive holiday decorations.
