Southern Arizona to host annual train show

The Southern Arizona VA Health Care System (SAVAHCS) will be hosting the Tucson Garden Railway Society of Tucson during the holiday season.  Numerous operational train displays will be set-up in the R.E. Lindsey Jr. Auditorium, Building 4 for patients, employees, volunteers, families, children, and especially the young at heart.  The train show will be held on Friday- December 27 from 9 a.m. to 4p.m. and Monday – December 30 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the viewing public.  The show will feature the earliest model trains to modern trains running on our Nation’s tracks today.

Those attending this prize-winning train show will be treated to a beautiful and dynamic scenery layout featuring mountain ranges, buildings, roads, and other scenic effects.  Members of the Tucson Garden Railway Society will be on hand to explain the history of each train display, how the displays were put together, and how to learn more about the society.

There is no cost for this train show and everyone in the Tucson community and throughout southern Arizona is cordially invited.  Visitors can enter through the Veterans Blvd. Gate at 3601 S. Sixth Avenue, proceed east and turn left to parking lot “Q” for parking requirements.
