Now in its 14th year at NorthPark Center, The Trains at NorthPark, presented by Bank of Texas, will celebrate its 25th anniversary this holiday season. The most elaborate toy trains exhibit in Texas, The Trains at NorthPark includes trains rolling across 1,600 feet of track on a journey across America. Cityscapes include downtown Dallas with the new Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, the State Fair of Texas and the Cotton Bowl; New York City's Times Square and Grand Central Terminal; Washington D.C. with the White House; New England's fall foliage; the Grand Canyon, Route 66, San Fancisco's Gold Gate Bridge and various other highlights.
The exhibit encompasses more than 4,000 square feet of train themed environments, with all the trimmings of the holiday train travel experience -- steam engine and coach cars, a ticket booth and a train station. In honor of the 25th anniversary, the exhibit's new additions include the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, hot air balloons in Albuquerque, a trolley car and new interactive features. More than 80,000 people visit The Trains at NorthPark™ each season as part of their holiday tradition.
The Trains at NorthPark is located on Level Two near Barneys New York. Admission is $6 for adults, $3 for children (ages 2-12) and seniors (65 and older); children under 2 years of age admitted free of charge. Discount tickets are available for purchase at Tom Thumb stores. Proceeds from The Trains at NorthPark provide almost one-third of the annual operating budget for The Ronald McDonald House of Dallas.
