Some of the largest crowds in history greeted the 69th running of the Santa Train Saturday. Organizers said attendance appeared up at most of 14 stops across Eastern Kentucky, Southwest Virginia and Kingsport, Tenn., with crowds ranging from a few hundred to more than 1,000 at St. Paul and Kingsport. 

CSX officials credited sunny weather and the longstanding tradition of generations attending the train stops for the increase. Many attendees said that struggling economic conditions also played a role.
