Grab your tickets now if you want to ride the Polar Express train in Michigan- there are only a few seats left for one trip.

The beloved Christmas movie 'The Polar Express' has a Michigan connection.

The blueprints of the locomotive Pere Marquette 1225 were used as the prototype for the magical train in the Tom Hanks film. Every holiday season, true believers can take the voyage from Owosso to the small village of Ashley and enjoy a Country Christmas celebration before the return trip.

And, yes, passengers can sip a cup of hot cocoa, and take home a bell and their souvenir ticket. Many of the trips are already sold out but remember, the true spirit of Christmas lies in your heart.
