The Sedona Railroaders will kick off the holiday season on December 15th and continue through December 30th (closed December 24th & 25th). This traditional holiday event will take place in the Sedona Vista Village in Sedona’s Village of Oak Creek on the corner of Highway 179 and Jacks Canyon Road. Hours will be daily 11 AM to 4:30 PM. The show is free to the public.
This year’s show is sponsored in part by The Sedona McDonald’s.
No Christmas would be complete without memories of the old-fashioned department store’s displays of miniature toy trains. “Get On Board!” and enjoy the re-creation of some of these memories through stunning visual images of operating model railroad equipment. This year’s exhibit will include an American Flyer S gauge layout. G, O, N, and HO gauges will also be on display.
Three drawings will be held during the event. Prizes include a pair of tickets on the Verde Canyon Railroad and two separate pairs of tickets on the Grand Canyon Railroad. Club members look forward to sharing their love of model railroading with residents and visitors alike.
