Ashley’s Adventures: Christmas Train and Light Spectacular
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — You can visit the Wilmington Railroad Museum anytime of the year, but during the holiday season it offers a special treat.
After hours, the museum welcomes families for the Christmas Train and Light Spectacular.
“I think it’s a great opportunity to get a look at the trains operating under twilight conditions,” said Mark Koenig, the museum’s executive director. “It’s darkened in the room and we have light animation loops going.”
Featuring both lights and festive music, the museum also adds snow to its track. You’ll even find Santa Claus flying above the model trains.
“Kids love it because they get to imagine themselves with the railroads and trains,” said Koenig.
Aside from the toy trains, kids can sit on Santa’s lap and enjoy a hot cup of cider during the event.
