Earlier today, we checked out our two closest train gardens, the Ellicott City Fire Station and the B&O Railroad Museum in Ellicott City.
The E.C. fire station passed out kiddie fireman helmets and candy canes. The display was a lot more elaborate and impressive than I was expecting. There is a donation box for contributing what you can. All in all, a fun and cheap family activity.
Warning, candy canes get sticky!
There was a cost for admission at the B&O Railroad Museum in Ellicott City. Six bucks each adult, and, free for kids under 2. Honestly, I didn’t really feel it was worth the $12 we paid, especially since we are on a limited budget. We won’t be adding this to our yearly Christmas traditions, but it was cool to see once. Several rooms have more realistic looking train displays, but the main attraction was the huge Lego train room.
What other train displays do you recommend?
