Description

This set does not include track or a power pack.

Operation North Pole (ONP) is a volunteer-based public charity. ONP works with Chicago's major children's hospitals, providing a day of fun and fantasy for families who have a child battling a life threatening illness by hosting a fantasy trip to the North Pole. The magical experience includes, breakfast, a festive train ride to the North Pole, a visit with Santa, winter wonderland fun, entertainment, treats, personal wish list gifts, and much more! It's ONP's goal to provide these families an unforgettable experience amidst very challenging times.

Kato USA has partnered with Operation North Pole to bring this special Christmas Train - a replica of the real life Christmas Train that was operated in 2017 to life as a means to support ONP's goal of spreading the magic of the holidays. To that end a portion of the proceeds from every sale of an Operation North Pole Christmas Train Set goes towards this charitable venture to help fund the chartering of this yearly train!

    Review Kato 2017 Operation North Pole

    Posted by david mihok on Oct 19th 2018

    By far this the nicest looking ONP from Kato. Graphics
    are excellent, as with all their product. Box is nice as
    Box is very nice, really would be nice gift with a stick on
    bow. This year you are getting 5 cars plus engine in
    bookcase case... The only thing I would like to see Kato
    try to do is produce the current year design rather than
    getting the model that is always the previous year. I
    would think they could coordinate this better once the
    design is chosen for the real thing, then they could get
    specifics on the wrap design. Otherwise 5 stars.
    Best for Last, ModelTrainStuff.com is outstanding with
    there fine customer service, prices, and shipping as the c
    customer is #1. Buy it today.
