There's something about trains and the holidays. John Candy and Steve Martin try to get home for Thanksgiving in the 1987 movie "Planes, Trains and Automobiles." A skeptical boy catches a ride on a train bound for the North Pole and learns that Santa Claus is real in the book (and movie), "The Polar Express." A holiday icon is a toy train set under a Christmas tree. Trains and the holidays go together like holly and ivy. Hendricks County, then, is a place you don't want to miss on Nov. 23 when two family events occur right down the road from each other and bring trains and Christmas together in Danville, Ind.
