CHICAGO, Ill. (WMAQ) - Commuters in Chicago can join Santa and his elves aboard this year's holiday train.

The Allstate CTA Holiday Train is an annual tradition in the city.

For even more holiday fun this year's train will be accompanied by the elves' workshop train.

The trains will feature Santa on a sleigh with his reindeer, festive decor with thousands of twinkling lights, elves with candy canes and more.

The tradition started on the Blue Line in 1992 with a "Season's Greetings from the CTA" sign on a train that delivered food to various charities.

The train will travel all 'L' lines for the rest of November into December.
