Highlandtown Holiday Train Garden chugs into its third season with a new look and local landmarks. Open Fridays, 3-8 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Dec. 3-Jan. 2 at Engine Company 41, 520 S. Conkling St., Baltimore, MD.
Over 2,000 visitors to last years garden were delighted to see model trains and streetcars travel along the track to pass by animated carnival rides, Santa workshop, and a miniature Highlandtown with storefronts representing landmarks like Hoehns Bakery, Stellas Bridal Fashions, National Lumber and Hardware and the Frank Zappa statue.
This year, volunteers have expanded the layout to a 32 x 8 foot two-level platform. They have constructed precise replicas of the Natty Boh building, DJ Liquidators, the Patterson Park Pagoda and the Boat Lake.
Free admission, donations gratefully accepted. The project, is a cooperative effort of the Baltimore City Fire Department, Highlandtown Main Streets and Southeast Community Development Corporation.
