Exhibit at National Toy Train Museum

By TCA Staff  Winter 2020

Recent visitors to the National Toy Train Museum have enjoyed the special wonderment of trains at this time of year. Both the Library and Museum staff have worked to extend the spirit to both visitors and members.

The staff of the National Toy Train Library assembled a series of 12 daily presentations on its Facebook page, one per day, running from December 14 – December 25, all with the common tag of #12DaysToyTrains. These posts share prewar holiday-themed advertisements for Lionel, Ives, and American Flyer that appeared in various magazines.

We are pleased to share six of them below. To see them all, and to enjoy the Museum’s Facebook presence, visit our these Facebook pages: (Library information) (Museum events)

For further information contact the National Toy Train Library here, and don’t forget, we have information on all aspects of toy trains, year round!

And, as usual, Museum staff and volunteers made the place very special, with decorations, exhibit modifications, and visits from Santa.
