TRANSPORTATION CENTER -- Santa Claus and the holiday toy express train

got held up by rainy conditions this weekend.

The 450-ton train, which has been decorated with large holiday

ornaments and more than 30,000 holiday lights and filled with gifts, has

now been set to arrive at 6 p.m. Friday at the Burbank Metrolink Station,

201 N. Front St., in Burbank.


The rescheduled lighting ceremony at the train station will also

feature a tribute to honor local firefighters who were called to duty in

New York City after the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center.

Santa and others aboard the holiday toy express will perform a live

stage show and Burbank firefighters will collect toys for the Southern

California Firefighters annual Spark of Love toy drive.
