16th Annual Festival of Trains @ Historic Rail Park and Train Museum
Dec 2 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
16th Annual Festival of Trains @ Historic Rail Park and Train Museum | Bowling Green | Kentucky | United States

16th Annual Festival of Trains!

What would Christmas be without trains! For centuries, one of America’s favorite Christmas images has been the Christmas Train. The Friends of L&N Depot continue those memories for young and old as they celebrate the sixteenth annual Festival of Trains, December 2nd & 3rd, at the Historic RailPark & Train Museum.

The sHOw Modular Model Railroad Club continues the tradition of showcasing their award winning HO scale exhibit in the main lobby. This model train layout represents the landscape of Kentucky and includes scenes of fall and winter. Various members of the club were responsible for creating and building a section of the layout. When it is all put together, approximately 1000 square feet in size, the model railroad exhibit enthralls you with fascinating miniature scenes.

Club members will be on-site during the event on both days. Anyone interested in learning more about becoming involved with the sHOw Modular Model Train Club is welcome to attend this event and learn more about what club membership is all about.

A collection of different size model exhibits will include the tiny Z scale model train up to the larger S and O scales. This year you will also see a T track layout done in N scale. These models are done in one foot lengths and connected together to make a larger layout. Who knew there were so many sizes of trains?! Thomas the Train model train returns for small rail fans to enjoy, and the O scale Polar Express will be present to thrill young and old alike.

On Saturday and Sunday, extend your railroad experience with a guided tour of the vintage railcars and a self-guided tour of the museum. Purchase a raffle ticket to win a Lionel model train set and receive a 50% admission to the museum and railcar tours!

For unique, one-of-a-kind gifts, the Historic RailPark gift shop has a large assortment of stocking stuffer and gift-giving ideas. We stock a variety of train themed toys for children of all ages. We also offer great books and authentic L&N Railroad merchandise for rail fans. And of course you can get your traditional train set for under the Christmas tree. All gift purchases come with free gift wrapping during the Christmas season.
