Full Locomotive Side Wrap. Will fit Walthers or Kato F40PH
Each year ONP charters a special Metra train, designing special vinyl wraps that adorn both the outside and the insides of the cars. Each years' design is unique, making each train a festive and colorful display. This train runs on the Union Pacific Northwest Line of the Chicago Metra commuter service, operating not only as a special charter train but remaining in service for a period after the Christmas Train event as rolling billboard to spread awareness of ONP and their goals.
Operation North Pole (ONP) is a volunteer-based public charity. ONP works with Chicago’s major children’s hospitals, providing a day of fun and fantasy for families who have a child battling a life threatening illness by hosting a fantasy trip to the North Pole. With the emotional and financial stresses a family with a child battling a life-threatening or a terminal illness may face, ONP makes every effort to ensure that the entire family participates and shares in the day's festivities. The magical experience includes breakfast, a festive train ride to the North Pole, a visit with Santa, winter wonderland fun, entertainment, treats, playing games, fulfilling personal wish list gifts with our "Secret Santas", and much more! It's ONP's goal to provide these families an unforgettable experience amidst the very challenging times they face daily.
While Operation North Pole continues to host this cornerstone holiday event, we are expanding our mission in the care of children. ONP distributed over 15,000 winter winter coats to children over the past several years to schools throughout the Chicago suburbs with the assistance of local Fire and Police Departments in association with Operation Warm, we hosted blood drives in partnership with LifeSource and continued to support numerous charitable missions and visions.
