The Holiday Train Show and Open House at Union County’s Model Railroad Club runs on weekends from Nov. 25 to Dec. 11.
The show features show train operations where special trains traverse the club’s huge 11,000-square-foot layout. Come see some of the famous trains of the past such as the Santa Fe’s famous Super Chief Pennsylvania Railroad’s Broadway Limited, NYC Subway, AMTRAK’s Acela Express and others.
Parents and kids can tour the trains and layout up-close, and get an insider’s peek at the expansion that’s currently under construction. See how track is being hand-laid, how mountains and scenery are created, and find out about the planning and engineering that goes into the club’s bi-level corkscrew loop. In addition to the HO-scale trains featured in the show, there are G-scale and N-scale layouts on display, a small play area, and gift shop.
