Model Train Show! December 12 and 13, 2009

Trains_09 The holiday season and model trains go together hand-in-hand, and our annual Model Train Weekend is one of our most popular events of the year! Discover the magic of trains at the Museum on Saturday, December 12 and Sunday, December 13, 2009. This family-friendly event is a perfect outing for adults and children of all ages. The HUB Division of the National Model Railroad Association presents miles of track with trains running on multiple main lines as they chug up mountain climbs, past coal mines, through small villages and into tunnels. Some engines pull 50 cars past hundreds of charming venues including icy lakes with skaters, snow-covered farms, and urban skyscrapers. The ever-popular Thomas the Tank Engine is here again this year!

“Model Train Weekend” hours are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 12, and noon till 4 p.m on Sunday, December 13. Admission is $5 for an individual or $7 per family . The Courtyard Cafe will be open for lunch. Visit our website for more information, or call 781-861-6559.

This is a great way to encourage and grow the pastime of Model Railroading. I have learned so much about this hobby and seeing the enjoyment that it brings around the world. I started out as a child with just a Lionel train set, however I see there is a wide variety of model trains, scales, niches and sub niches.

Thanks for the pictures.

I passed by with my daughter. We are serious model railroaders ourselves, even if I think at one point, she's going to let it go :-) She's only 4 y/o ;-)
