public is invited to attend and exchange a new, unused, unwrapped toy
for a free companion fare coupon, good for travel aboard the brand new
Amtrak Cascades between January 4 and April 1, 1999. All toys
collected will be donated to local Toys For Tots programs,
sponsored by the United States Marine Corps Reserve. Other activities
include pictures with Santa and refreshments.
In addition to the Holiday Open House events, toys may be exchanged for
free companion fare coupons at the Seattle, Portland, Bellingham and
Edmonds Amtrak stations throughout the week of December 7 - 13, 1998.
All toys collected will be distributed locally by the United States

Since 1947, the U.S. Marine Corps Toys For Tots program has
assisted America's neediest children at Christmas with a present day
average of 8 million toys collected annually.
