Delight in viewing a late 19th-century model train and village display, installed inside the Armory Food & Event Hall. This annual tradition has been on display for over 40 years!
The train operates daily, 10am to 6pm  November 24th through December 31st.
(Closes at 4pm on Dec 24; closed Dec 25)

Take a turn controlling the model train between 10:30 AM-12:00 PM, 1:00 PM-2:30 PM and 3:30-5:30 PM daily. $2 suggested donation.

Or, enter our Winterfest Train Scavenger Hunt, sponsored by Symetra. Pick up your entry sheet at the Train Station, then see how many clues you can spot. We'll give away weekly prizes throughout Winterfest, and one grand prize, drawn at random from all submissions. More info.


Audio Description is available for the Winter Train & Village. Access a QR code to listen to an audio file describing the display. QR code is posted on signage on the north side of the King Street Station structure, east side of the village. Signage includes braille. For assistance with the QR code, guests can ask the yard boss. Transcripts in accessible and large font print are also available from the yard boss inside King Street Station.  Listen to Audio Description here.
