TCA Kids Club: Your “Whistle Stop” for Fun!

Attention parents and guardians of train enthusiasts under age 13:

Are you looking for a free club where your kids can learn all about toy trains and how the collecting hobby works? You’ve come to the right place!

The TCA Kids Club offers kids under age 13 a fantastic way to meet new friends while they enjoy looking at and operating toy trains—and even assembling train layouts with complicated wiring and design and computer controls!

What Do You Get When You Join TCA Kids?

When you join, you will receive a membership certificate, member card, and more. Provide your email address, and you’ll be added to our mailing list to receive our exclusive “Keeping Track” newsletter, which is jam-packed with age-appropriate activities.

But that’s not all. Every TCA Kids Club member receives free admission whenever they visit the National Toy Train Museum in Strasburg, PA! Make a plan to come out and see our huge collection of trains—and run them, too!
