THOMASTON, Conn. (WTNH) — The Santa Express traveled along the Naugatuck Railroad Saturday afternoon to pick up donated toys that will make the holiday brighter for children in need.

The train had four stops:
- Church Street opposite Christmas Village in Torrington
- Along East Litchfield Road in East Litchfield
- The Railroad Museum of New England in Thomaston
- Fascia’s Chocolates in Waterbury
U.S. Marine Corps Reservists, as well as Santa and Mrs. Claus, were aboard to help handle the donations.
