The pair admired the handiwork involved in decorating a tree in the Queen of the Line Depot where visitors could buy ornaments and sweet treats and tour the historic station.

Santa Claus, along with Mrs. Claus, arrived on the back of a truck followed by a Madison Township fire engine and then welcomed visitors to share their holiday wishes inside the interurban station.

Historic buildings were decked out in festive colors and lights and will be on display for the rest of the month.
A portion of the Canal Winchester Area Historical Society Queen of the Line depot was devoted to a multi-level scale model railroad of the local area to the delight of adults and children alike Dec. 1 and 2. Larry Flowers helped interpret the display for visitors.
