What to DO and SEE at Train Days:
Train Days is going to be SO MUCH FUN!
The number one thing you have to do is to climb aboard the amazing train equipment that has come into Union Depot especially for Train Days. There will be 3 locomotives, as well as passenger train cars you can walk through.
My very favorite thing to experience is the Hiawatha above. Frank Sinatra used to charter it along with the Rat Pack when they traveled through the Midwest, as it ran from Chicago to the Twin Cities. It’s like stepping back in time!
Also be sure to snap some photos of Locomotives, a BNSF Taconite Ore Car, grain hopper car, very new Amtrak ALC-42 “Charger” locomotive and more.
There is more to do and see besides the train equipment.
There’s plenty to see for both adults and children. Shop the vendor marketplace, see model trains, view a Steam Locomotive photography exhibit, take a bus tour, complete crafts, play oversized games, participate in contests, and more!
There will also be an activity area for children featuring games with prizes and other kid-friendly activities.
You can also grab concessions from Station 81, Deb’s Hot Dogs stand, and a selection of food trucks.
Visit the Union Depot website for all the details!
While you wait a few weeks for train days, check out the Activity Book listed at the bottom of the site. Find a free 10 page downloadable activity book with coloring pages, puzzles, word finds, mazes and fun facts about Union Depot!
