Osceola Train – A Ride Back in Time

Opposite the balcony, is a mail car that operated around 1900. A volunteer will show you how they bagged mail, sorted and carried out the postal service work as the train continues back to Osceola. Plus, look carefully below; notice mail slot for “North Pole – Santa.” This train actually delivers mail to Santa and the volunteers are more than happy to explain how that whole thing works.
