Two railroads ban alcohol during SantaCon
suburban New York railroads will have a 24-hour alcohol ban to help curb naughtiness during next weekend’s SantaCon, an annual pub crawl that draws revelers costumed as Santa Claus and other Christmas characters.
Newsday reports the booze ban will be in effect from noon Saturday to noon Sunday on the Long Island Rail Road and the Metro-North Railroad. Metropolitan Transportation Authority police will confiscate alcohol and issue summonses that could result in fines or jail. Violators also could get kicked off trains or out of stations. (AP)
