Ronald McDonald House of Dallas Ushers Trains at NorthPark

Trains at NorthParkChoo-choo! One of our family’s holiday traditions is going to see the Trains at NorthPark Center during the holidays. Trains at NorthPark, presented by Bank of Texas, centers around approximately 1,600 feet of track, 20 loops, 4 trolley car tracks and 24 Lionel train sets hauling more than a hundred pieces of rolling cars and pieces.
Texas Trains at NorthPark Imagine seeing Dallas’ skyline to include the Cotton Bowl and the State Fair with a clear view of Big Tex and the Ferris wheel. That is just one part of the miniatures created at this year’s Trains at NorthPark exhibit. The trains roll across the country with a stop on the East Coast at the White House, winter wonderland style, framed by the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument and the reflect pool. Trains that are hand painted roll in and around the area that is encased in a plastic box. On the other side of that display are numerous ones that reflex what are traditional scenes of New York City – the subway, Grand Central Station and the city’s skyline.
NYC Trains of NorthPark In another case sits a partial replica of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, which include small colored row houses, with trains running in and around the area where water would normally be stationed around the bridge. You can see all these scenes as more than 3,800 square feet of trains with various holiday themes race round and round and round.

Trains at NorthPark is a fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas. The House receives 100% of the proceeds, and that money is used to provide a home-away-from-home atmosphere for families coming to the Dallas area with children who are sick or seriously injured. To see it for yourself visit the exhibit on the second floor of the NorthPark Center between Free People and Sephora. There is a $6 cost for adults and $3 cost for children 12 and under.
