Night Trains returns to the Twin City Model Railroad Museum
A holiday tradition continues with the arrival of the annual Night Trains event at the Twin City Model Railroad Museum.
On Saturday nights, the lights are turned down and the giant size O scale layout comes alive in a magical way. Buildings and street lights glow warmly, setting the scene for specially lighted models of vintage passenger trains.
The town of Mattlin is buried in a blizzard, and throughout the layout are miniature Christmas lights and decorations. The spectacular Christmas Train with its engine and cars covered in hundreds of lights wishing everyone the happiest of holiday is something not to be missed.
Night Trains is a special attraction at the Museum each holiday season beginning on the Saturday after Thanksgiving (November 26, 2011) and running every Saturday evening from 6:00 to 9:00 pm through the last Saturday in February (February 25, 2012), except on Christmas Eve.
This special run takes place at historic Bandana Square, originally a Northern Pacific Railway repair shop, and home to the Twin City Model Railroad Museum’s O-scale model railroad since 1984.
Added in 2009 is the Museum’s Toy Train Division in the historic Chimneys Building just north of Bandana Square. On display there are many model railroad layouts in a variety of scales. Many are new since last year’s Night Trains season and allow kids (and adults!) hands-on experience operating select trains and many great operating accessories.
