2015 Christmas Train Special
Silver Anniversary

For 25 years BNSF has touched people’s lives by putting together a very special event, the Christmas Train.  This event has spread warmth and kindness to many less fortunate children within the community. 

This year, once again, we are looking for volunteers to help spread BNSF holiday cheer.  We are looking for people who are willing to assist Santa and Mrs. Clause by helping with loading and unloading of passengers, distributing cookies/juice, caroling, set-up, clean-up, and a multitude of other duties related to spreading holiday cheer to hundreds of children.

This year’s train will operate on:

Saturday              12/12/15 (Summit)  
Sunday          12/13/15 (Victorville/Barstow)
Monday         12/14/15 (Victorville/Barstow)   

The trains start and end from San Bernardino and the hours for volunteers typically are from 0700 to 1600.

If you are interested in being a part of this special event and would like to volunteer your time to this worthwhile cause, please send an E-Mail request to OPRDLVol@bnsf.com with:

·      Your name
·      Date (s) you are interested in working
·      Contact information (E-Mail and Phone Number)

One of the Christmas train coordinators will contact you to confirm your assignment. 

Unfortunately, due to a limited number of volunteer positions, we may not be able to guarantee an assignment for everyone that submits a request; however we will do everything we can to accommodate as many as possible in this fun event and we appreciate all those who volunteer. 

 Take advantage of the opportunity to be a part of something that is truly rewarding and a long-standing BNSF tradition!
