Union Station, MTH Electric Trains and Amtrak Have Partnered to Bring an Exciting New Holiday Model Train Display to Union Station
Visit the Main and West Halls Between November 22 and January 2 – It’s Free and Open to the Public
The joy of model railroading transcends generations as it sparks the imagination of young and old alike often creating memories that last a lifetime. As a leading model train manufacturer, M.T.H. Electric Trains from nearby Columbia, Maryland produces a wide range of products spanning HO, O, G and Standard gauges. We model trains from every different railroad period, including those found in Europe and beyond.
The model train displays seen in Union Station are made up of O Gauge trains from the steam and modern eras. Every train is outfitted with state-of-the-art electronics capable of recreating the sounds, lights and smoke of their real-life counterparts and each display is controlled by the M.T.H. DCS Digital Command System providing hands-free control of the railroad by starting, stopping and running the trains independent of a human “engineer”.
Model railroading is a great way to return to the wholesome, family-oriented activities many find missing from their busy lives. Most of the trains featured on the Union Station layouts are available in ready-to-run starter sets, each outfitted with sound-equipped locomotives, durable freight or passenger cars, enough track to get started and a digital wireless remote that puts the power of the railroad right in your hand.
