ALBANY TWP., Pa. -

A Christmas dream came true for dozens of children battling life-threatening illnesses.

Eighty-five children boarded the "North Pole Express" Saturday in Albany Township, Berks County.

During the train ride, children got to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus as they made their way to the "North Pole."

The train ride was hosted by the Dream Come True Foundation; the Wannamaker, Kempton & Southern Railroad; and the Kempton Community Center.
