Night Trains season is a special Holidays tradition at the Twin City Model Railroad Museum. Night Trains will begin on Saturday, November 4th and will runs every Saturday evening from 6:00 to 9:00 pm through the last Saturday in February (Saturday, February 24th, 2018).

Night Trains Season comes to museum 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.
