Toy Train Christmas is intended to bring back the days of old when toy trains were common around the Christmas tree. The first Toy Train Christmas in 2005 included 9 fully decorated Christmas trees and each had a toy train around it.
There is a full range of electric trains in operation from the smallest Z gauge to a large garden scale layout. A 7 1/2" scale live steam model of NP 1364 is on display. Trains range from very old to new models. One room is all Lego trains in operation with an opportunity for kids to work on their own design..
There are a number of hands on activities for the kids including crafts projects and toy trains designed for younger children to operate. The short caboose ride from the depot to the "North Pole" to see Santa is a child's delight. Festivities included hot chocolate and cookies. Optional photographs with Santa are available.
Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for kids.
