I heard it was based on the train that runs in Michigan, have you heard about this?
Absolutely! The famous movie starring the voice of Tom Hanks in the Polar Express was based on the Pere Marquette 1225 that is owned by the Steam Railroading Institute in Owosso, Michigan. Did you know you can go for train rides on the 1225?
I have tons of info about the Michigan Polar Express below!
