      Holiday Trains 2019 (Personal and Public Displays)

      It's my favorite time of the year again, the holiday season. One of my favorite things about my favorite season is the prevalence of trains! Train gardens, as they are known in the Baltimore area, have been a holiday tradition for generations. It was probably at one of these train gardens that I had my first exposure to model trains as a young child.

       

      Please feel free to post pics and info about any and all holiday train displays that you would like to share. Whether it be a display your club is involved in, or the train under your tree, show us your holiday trains in 2019!

      ( ALL SCALES WELCOME)

      The Susquehanna Valley Garden Railway Society has set up a large display for many years at Rocky Ridge Park in York, PA.  It is approximately 20x50 ft and is one of the highlights of their Christmas Magic light show that runs from Nov 29th to Dec 31st. The display includes both indoor and outdoor trains running through holiday scenery.  The kids especially look forward to the Thomas train we run each year.

      Here is the website for the show:

      The Garden Factory in Rochester, NY has had a wonderful G Scale layout since 1994.  Originally built by Peter Todd and Dave Rouse the layout was significantly refurbished in 2012 and runs each day from Thanksgiving to Dec 31.

      The Canadian Pacific's two "Holiday Trains" (Christmas Trains) have both started their annual tours.
