SACRAMENTO, Calif. – 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.
With all the fun and festive activities happening inside the Museum, there’s plenty to do outdoors in Old
Sacramento State Historic Park as well.
Interested guests can visit with Santa Claus in the Eagle Theatre from 2:30 – 9:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday on Thanksgiving weekend then Wednesdays through Sundays until December 20. While it’s free to take a moment to share holiday wishes with the jolly old elf, children can have their picture taken with Santa by a professional photographer for a fee.
dazzling and free “Theatre of Lights” program will brighten the evening skies with a nightly symphony of
lights, sounds and visual effects that start on Wednesday evening, November 25, at 6 p.m. and continue
Thursdays through Sundays plus other special days through New Year’s Eve (except for Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day).
All “Small Train Holiday” activities are included with Museum admission: $10 adults; $5 youths ages 6-
17; free for children ages 5 and under. For more information about the “Small Train Holiday” or the
