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.
If you are coming to the Twin Cities, this is a wonderful day trip for kids or railroad history enthusiasts.
