Saturday, May 8th, 2010 is National Train Day and there will celebrations around the country in major train stations, small depots, and transportation museums around the country.  You can read my column on the festivities – Marking Americans’ love affair with the rails , but here are a few highlights and a few bonus photos. Amtrak is celebrating National Day Train Day with free events that include model train displays, tours of private railroad cars, cooking demonstrations and a wide range of other activities at train stations in New York, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, Chicago and Los Angeles. At Philadelphia’s 30th Street Station, there will an exhibit titled Baseball Junction: The History of Baseball and the American Railroad with memorabilia, photos and videos.
At Chicago’s Union Station, they’ll be talking about the role train travel played in the history of blues music in America.  Posters and other memorabilia from the Chicago Blues Museum will be on display and there will be a performance of train-themed blues songs by Big Bill and Larry “Mud” Morganfield, who are the sons of legendary blues musician Muddy Waters. The first steam locomotive roared down steel tracks in 1830, and all who saw this cutting edge technology were filled with awe at the sheer force of the thing. Accuracy is the aim of model railroaders and they focus on every imaginable aspect of railroad history and operations.


Different size model trains have been produced by a number of manufacturers: Lionel, American Flyer, Marx, and Marklin to name a handful. Early model trains were manufactured from tinplate and were popular until shortly after World War II. The Model Train Exhibit at Merchants Square Mall is one of the most popular things for kids and adults to do in the Lehigh Valley. Miniatures of steam locomotives and train cars were soon sold as souvenirs and model train collecting was born. Soldiers returned from the war with brass model trains they acquired in Japan, sparking the interest in brass train sets which remained popular through the 1970’s. His crowning achievement is a complete replica of New York’s Grand Central Station in his house, comprised of 100 feet of track, dozens of locomotives and carriages, skyscrapers and hundreds of passengers in 1940s dress.
