Toy Trains 2014

11576814514_83f0111875_kJoin us for a rotating cavalcade of  operating toy trains from the 1920s to the 21st century. Watch a massive standard gauge steam engine from the 1920s start up-headlight flashing, drive wheels spinning, smoke flowing from the smoke stack and of course a mighty whistle. On another track, see a remote controlled modern production of an O gauge diesel with all the latest electronic features. Hear the roar as the diesel starts up, the blast of the mighty horn, the squeal of the brakes at the train slows for a curve and the chatter between the engineer and the control tower. Toy trains have come a long way over the last century, but new or old, the emphasis is on fun!


The exhibit opens Friday, December 19th 4-9pm and runs through Sunday, December 28th.

The Museum is closed on Mondays, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day and closes early at 3pm on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve.
