Normally our annual Night Trains Season begins November 24th (the Saturday after Thanksgiving) and continues every (and only on) Saturday night until February 23th.
However due to overwhelming demand, TCMRM has decided to add two Night Trains Extras to the schedule—a premiere on November 23 the Friday evening after Thanksgiving, (or Black Friday) and New Year’s Eve, December 31st.
Also Santa Claus will attend the all Saturday Night Trains sessions leading up to Christmas. So come and make your request for a train set for Christmas.
About Night Trains
Night Trains Season is a special Holidays tradition at the Twin City Model Railroad Museum beginning the Saturday after Thanksgiving (November 24, 2012) and running every Saturday evening from 6:00 to 9:00 pm through the last Saturday in February (February 23, 2013). New this year will be two Night Trains Extras, a season premiere on Friday, November 23rd and a New Year’s Eve special on December 31st.
Night Trains Season comes to the dozens of model railroad layouts in a magical way, the lights are turned down, the buildings and street lights glow warmly, setting the scene for specially lighted models of vintage passenger trains. The make believe town of Matlin is buried in a blizzard, and throughout the Museum the layouts are adorned with miniature Christmas lights and decorations.
This year Santa will be hanging out the Museum each Saturday from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, between Thanksgiving and Christmas, and from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm on December 8th he will have sack of goodies for good girls and boys. Bring your camera and tell him about the train you want for Christmas. There’s no additional admission to see Santa!
