Toy Trains 2017–December 15th-31st


Save to:

10:00 am-5:oo pm

Experience a mini-universe of model trains that delight the young and young at heart.

Back for their 12th year, the Golden State Toy Train Operators, Inc. presents Toy Trains. Watch a massive standard gauge steam engine from the 1920s start up with the headlight flashing and drive wheels spinning. Marvel at smoke flowing from the smoke stack, and a mighty whistle. Members of the the Golden State Toy Train Operators will be on hand to help young engineers’ master controls and to answer questions. You can even bring your own toy train and put it on the track!

Also enter the raffle to win a toy train! Raffle drawing will be on Saturday December 30th at 12:00 noon.

Holiday Hours: The Museum is closed on Christmas Day, and closes early at 3pm on Christmas Eve and New Years E

    Kind of a confusing blurb! Is there an actual full sized steam engine that is going to somehow be at the MAH? Or a *model* “massive standard gauge steam engine from the 1920s” that is on the model train layout? Please clarify! Thank you.
