Another Night Trains season opened on November 27th to a huge crowd; they came from as far as Indiana and Illinois (maybe farther.) Many were in town for the Thanksgiving Holiday to visit family and friends and to experience a Twin Cities Holiday tradition; TCMRM’s annual Night Trains.
Many of the attractions of Night Trains remain the same, i.e. the lighted Christmas Train traversing the big Bandana Square world famous O-Scale layout. A highly detailed layout, when dimly lit, it creates a magical charm.
However there are many new attractions too, each making their own separate journey to St. Paul for all to enjoy. Such as three new layouts on display in the Toy Train Division in the Chimneys Building including the much publicized Corrigan O gauge layout from Santa Barbara, California, a historic Marklin HO Scale layout originally made in Germany and an S gauge American Flyer layout.
These layouts join others that have been added to the assortment of exhibits since the Museum opened its Toy Train Division in February 2009. Start or continue your own family holiday tradition by attending Night Trains, offered every Saturday night 6-9 PM, now through February 26th, except Christmas Day.
Have you taken your family to see Night Trains yet this season?
