(St. Paul, MN): Night Trains Season starts Saturday, November 4 at the Twin City Model Railroad Museum in St. Paul. For model train enthusiasts of all ages, Night Trains Season is an annual favorite!
What is Night Trains?
Every year, the Museum’s collection of model trains and toy trains is transformed into a season of lights and magic throughout the Museum. On Saturday nights all winter long, the lights of the trains, winter landscapes, and cozy towns glow brightly with the ambient dimmed lighting in the museum. The make-believe towns are buried in blizzards, and throughout the Museum, train layouts of various scales and sizes layouts are adorned with miniature Christmas lights and decorations.
In November the snow starts falling on the miniature villages. Soon, holiday-themed decor and lights will start to appear on the trains and villages, lasting through the holiday season. The Night Trains will run like clockwork through beautiful winter scenes through February.
New This Year
New this year is the addition of the birthday party rooms at the Twin City Model Railroad Museum which are great for year-round celebrations. The “Mini-Sota” gallery has several new or expanded train layouts and the fan-favorite LEGO display is being expanded as well!
