SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- It's a classic Christmas story; the tale of a young boy who travels to the North Pole on Christmas Eve by way of the Polar Express. Some lucky kids at Sevierville Primary spent the day re-living the book.
It was just like a page from the book, The Polar Express, children dressed in PJ's and slippers at Sevierville Primary ready to board the Polar Express.
However, they didn't have tickets and it wasn't Christmas Eve. But to their surprise a guest came into their classroom looking for tickets.
He was dressed from head to toe in the classic train conductor uniform. It was complete with tickets for the children and the famous hole puncher that was used in the story.
Even though the children can't leave on the Polar Express quite yet; they had a chance to meet and greet with the conductor himself.
It was a long journey from the North Pole but well worth it because he wanted to let the kids know that they should always believe.
