FILLMORE FA LA LA: It was just days ago that we were talking about the Fillmore & Western Ghost Train, an October scare ride through the land of citrus groves (citrus groves are not scary, generally, except in the witching month). Now word comes from the train people that the always popular North Pole Express Train tickets have just gone on sale. We don't have to explain the word "always popular" when it comes to the North Pole Express, right? Right.
THE SANTA SHOPPER, TOO: This is the get-your-goodies train that the Fillmore runs. You get to visit the cute on-site gift shop, and a tree farm to boot. Halloween and Thanksgiving haven't even drawn close and yet this is all putting us in a very pine-scented kind of mood.
