The Burbank Fire Department welcomed the Metrolink Holiday Toy Express to the Downtown Burbank Metrolink Station on Sunday, December 9. The train, carrying Santa and many of his helpers, will stop to help collect toys for the ABC7 and Southern California Firefighters’ Spark of Love Toy Drive.

The Holiday Toy Express is a 450-ton train decorated with over 50,000 lights which features a special car. For the past 16 years, the train has traveled all through Southern California making 41 stops annually, collecting gifts for underprivileged families, while sharing holiday family entertainment and music. Toys collected at the Burbank event will be distributed to children within Burbank.

In addition, the Weinerschnitzel Weinerwagon was at the event and served meals to everyone who brought an unwrapped toy for the toy drive.
