IT'S not often you see a train with reindeer antlers, halls decked with tinsel and Santa onboard.

But that's exactly what arrived at Richlands Station at 10.05am last Thursday.

The jolly man in red took time out of his busy schedule to greet south-west children onboard the Santa Express.

The father of Christmas spread cheer across all train lines on the City network from December 10-14.

Dozens of children waited in anticipation to see the fat man in his red suit as he handed out free candy canes.

Kyliehleah McDougall was one of them.

The three-year-old knew exactly what she wanted to ask Santa.

"I want a bike for Christmas, a water slide and a swing set," she smiled.

Queensland Rail executive general manager of customer service Martin Ryan said despite a busy schedule, Santa made a special exception to ride the Santa Express.

"We are delighted Santa can join us again this year in spreading the Christmas cheer this festive Season," he said.
