California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum have exciting plans to dazzle, delight and engage post-Thanksgiving visitors with a special “Small Train Holiday” on Friday, November 27, and Saturday, November 28, 2015.

For this special two-day holiday extravaganza, the Museum brings together a magical assortment of trains, hundreds of feet of track and an array of buildings and accessories. For just two days a year, local organizations and devoted individuals set up shop in the Museum, filling the Roundhouse with delightful model and toy train layouts of every description. Visitors of all ages will marvel at the variety of locomotives that pull pretend passengers and scaled-down shipments through all kinds of scenery, whether modeled on real places or created in the imaginations of the collectors. Additionally, guests can enjoy participating in a discovery-filled scavenger hunt throughout the Museum.
