NorthPark Center Dallas – For the 28th year, trains have rolled into Dallas and are delighting visitors young and old at NorthPark Center. Benefiting the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas, the Trains at NorthPark is the most elaborate miniature model trains exhibit in Texas.
With approximately 1,800 feet of track, there are 1,000 railcars in the exhibit with locomotives rolling across multiple tracks journeying across America. Memorable landmarks in Dallas such as the famous Dallas skyline, the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, and the State Fair of Texas can be seen as well as destinations beyond Dallas. You’ll recognize other famous sites as well – from New York City’s Times Square to the White House in Washington, D.C. to the Grand
Canyon to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge. The journey is as unique as the country itself.

According to event organizers, more than 70,000 visitors enjoy The Trains at NorthPark and have raised over $13 million for the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas, a home-away-from-home for families of seriously ill or injured children.
Holidays are a magical time, and so are trains, so being able to combine the two to raise much needed funds to keep the lights on and the House open for families during a critical time is important,” said Jill Cumnock, Ronald McDonald House of Dallas CEO.
The Trains at NorthPark will be running now through January 3, 2016 on Level 2 near Nordstrom (8687 N. Central Expressway, Dallas, TX 75225). Admission is $7 for adults, $3 for children (ages 2 to 12) and senior citizens (65 and older). Children under 2 are admitted free.
