DOWNTOWN — The more the merrier.

A new "Elves' Workshop Train" will follow the popular CTA holiday train through Chicago this winter, according to the Chicago Transit Authority. 

Like the holiday train, the elves' train will be adorned with garland, bows, and wintry scenes as "Santa's Elves" hand out candy canes to riders. The six-car elf train will debut Nov. 26 and follow the holiday train every Saturday the holiday train is in service.

“The CTA holiday train and bus are iconic Chicago traditions that are enjoyed by thousands every year,” Dorval Carter, Jr., CTA's president, said in a statement. “We’re pleased to expand on that strong Chicago tradition by offering the new Elves’ Workshop Train, which will allow even more customers to experience this unique holiday happening.”
