It’s not too late to catch a toy train show in Bergen County. Every year from Thanksgiving through mid December there are train shows throughout the Bergen County area. Most occur just before or just after Thanksgiving. It’s not too late to catch one because the The Montvale Train Show is coming up this weekend.
Held this Sunday, December 19th, at St. Joseph High School on Chestnut Ridge Road in Montvale, it’s very easy to get to and right off Exit 172 of the Garden State Parkway. There is an admission charge of $6 but children under 10 years of age get in free. For all of the details, just go to their website.
If this weekend doesn’t work for you, the “Big Daddy” of all holiday train shows is at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx. One of the great advantages of living in Bergen County is how close we are to New York City. From my home in Englewood, it’s only a 30 minute drive away. If you live in the most northern end of Bergen County such as Mahwah or Allendale or on the west edge in Franklin Lakes or Oakland, the Botanical Garden is only another 15 minutes on the highway. This train show is an all day event and it’s so popular that you need to make reservations in advance. You’ll find all the information if you visit their website . This model train show runs through January 9th.
