The Trains at NorthPark, presented by Bank of Texas, will celebrate its 27th year in Dallas and 16th year at NorthPark Center in 2014. 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 beautiful 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 Francisco’s Golden 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 as well as interactive features. The Trains have been a holiday tradition for two generations of Dallas children; area families have been purchasing railcars personalized with their children’s names and other special holiday messages. More than 70,000 people visit The Trains at NorthPark each season.
