      Do you hear the train coming? All Aboard!
      Don’t miss out on this New England holiday tradition. The family-friendly Train Show exhibit is back for its 30th year at the Connecticut River Museum and is sure to surprise and delight visitors of all ages. See what train artist Steve Cryan has created this year! A fully operational nearly 30-foot train layout, “I SPY” scavenger hunts, and a toddler-sized viewing layout are all part of the fun!
      NOTE: A members-only Train Show Opening Event will be held from 4-6 p.m. Nov. 21. Stay tuned for more information on the event opening.
