WOONSOCKET – The train whistle of the Polar Express will soon be sounding from the former Providence & Worcester Railroad Depot at Depot Square as another holiday season of rides to the North Pole begins on Sunday.

Bob Billington of the Blackstone Valley Tourism Council said yesterday that the final touches of putting the Polar Express Station together at the Depot will be completed early this week and the local recreation of the Chris Van Allsburg holiday classic ready to take off on its first run Sunday afternoon.

Pawtucket has seen four skippers come and go dating back to Buddy Bailey’s dismissal in 2004. In Ron Johnson and Arnie Beyeler, the Red Sox elected to go the internal route – both received promotions from their managerial posts in Double-A Portland.
