The Northern Star is the train that Mr. Nicholas catches, shown in 'Tis A Gift. It was played by the Grand Canyon's ex-Lake Superior & Ishpeming Railroad No. 18.

The Northern Star is the name of the special Christmas train which runs to and from the North Pole, and it even lives at the North Pole.


  • Most of the trains on the Indian Valley Railroad always run late to operate in a snowstorm, but The Northern Star is the only train that can operate in the snowstorm.
  • The train doesn't run on the railway but when it came to Shining Time Station it actually does.
