My wife and I took our grandson to ride the North Pole Express today in Owosso, Michigan. It's the Pere Marquette Northern that was digitally scanned and used in the movie. Lots of fun! And of course, when we got back we just HAD to get my Polar Express running! While running it, it made the usual sounds, first, while standing still; "This is the Polar Express", "All aboard", and when under way; "Tickets, tickets, please", "The first gift of Christmas", and 'I am the king of the North Pole!". I remember getting one more, that is, "The thing about trains. It doesn't matter where you go. what matters is that you get on (or something)". But I cannot get it to say that last one. I seem to remember a special way of pressing the sound button, or waiting, or....? Does anybody out there have any experience with accessing that particular sound? By accident, I got it to say it last year, but cannot duplicate it this year. The manual is no help. It's the first year issue of the train, by the way.
In the grand scheme of things, this is rather small, but it's bugging me!
