Holiday LIGHTS Express: Antique Toy Trains
November 21, 2019 – January 05, 2020
This year, Cheekwood will provide a festive display of one of America’s most popular holiday customs, Christmas trains. Holiday LIGHTS Express: Antique Toy Trains is an exhibition of model trains from the 1920s and 1930s set in the traditionally decorated Cheekwood Recreation Room. Ever since December 1900, model trains altered the toy making industry with their ingenuity and authenticity, making them a longstanding high-demand Christmas gift for decades. Whether it was a Lionel or American Flyer model, tots of the 1920/30s had trains at the top of their holiday wish-list. We hope you will join us aboard the Holiday Lights Express to experience the railroad magic of holiday’s past.
