Jim Hughes, who is the conductor, said he loves putting everything together.  It’s all about putting smiles on everyone’s face.

Hughes said, “A lot of kids really enjoy trains but, on the other hand a lot of kids don't really know what trains are. And so it's fun and educational at the same time."

There is a limit of 40 viewers per show so make sure to get your ticket in advance.  They will perform every Thursday and Friday from 6:00p.m. to 7:00p.m.  The shows on Saturday’s are at 2:00p.m., 3:00p.m., 6:00p.m., and 7:00p.m.
