HH-2017: Twin City Model Railroad Museum


courtesy of Twin City Model Railroad Museum • Visit the make believe town of Matlin when the annual “Night Trains” returns to the Twin City Model Railroad Museum.

“Night Trains” season is back. This special holiday tradition returns to the Twin City Model Railroad Museum and will run every Saturday evening from 6 to 9 p.m. through Feb. 24, 2018.

Night Trains season comes to the museum’s dozens of model railroad layouts in a magical way: the lights are turned down, the buildings and street lights glow warmly — setting the scene for specially lighted models of vintage passenger trains. The make believe town of Matlin is buried in a blizzard, and throughout the museum the layouts are adorned with miniature Christmas lights and decorations.

This year Santa will be visiting the museum on Dec. 23. He will have a sack of goodies for good girls and boys. Bring the camera and tell Santa about the train you want for Christmas. There’s no additional admission to see Santa.

Night Trains takes place at the museum’s location at 668 Transfer Road, Suite 8 in St. Paul. Directions to the Twin City Model Railroad Museum can be found on the museum’s web site, www.tcmrm.org. Admission to this special show is $15 per person and free for children age four and under. Discounted group rates are also available for groups of three or more, up to 10 people.
