Take a journey through the marvelously detailed world of model trains!
The Washington State History Museum’s 25th Annual Model Train Festival rolls into town Friday, December 17, 2021 and runs through Sunday, January 2, 2022
(the museum is open New Year’s Day, but closed Dec. 24-25).
The Model Train Festival brings railroad clubs from around Puget Sound to share their incredible layouts. Every floor of the museum comes alive with trains, from the Kitsap Live Steamers 7.5 inch gauge railroad engines to the Mount Rainier N-Scale layout featuring miniature scenery of Western Washington and so many more.
The largest permanent model train layout in Washington is always on display at the museum, operated by Puget Sound Model Railroad Engineers.
Train operators will be on hand for questions and conversations.
