Hot cocoa-coated smiles greeted Santa during a BNSF Holiday Express train ride Dec. 6, 2011, in Fargo. During the 90-minute excursion on the vintage rail cars, military children munched on treats and posed for photos with the jolly man from the North Pole. Those on Santa's "nice" list -- all 370 passengers, it seemed, also unwrapped commemorative ornaments resembling military coins for excellence.

Many of the military families on the ride have had a family member deployed in the past year or serving overseas now. Some had a parent mobilize just that morning.

After the ride, BNSF officials presented $20,000 to two nonprofit organizations that help military families in the state: Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, known as TAPS, and Soldiers Angels.
