Jingle Rails, Eiteljorg Museum, Indianapolis, IndianaJingle Rails: The Great Western Adventure” is open at the Eiteljorg Museum, White River State Park, 500 West Washington Street, Indianapolis, Indiana. At this year’s edition, model trains wind past miniature landscapes of Indianapolis and the American West. New this year: a trip on U.S. Highway Route 66!

“Jingle Rails” is a G-scale model train wonderland containing nine working model trains that wind through a miniature landscape.

The exhibit features miniature versions of downtown Indianapolis buildings, including the Eiteljorg Museum, Monument Circle, Union Station, and Lucas Oil Stadium.

The trains then head through the national parks of the American West, passing legendary sites, including grand railway lodges, Northwest Coast Native villages, and wonders both natural and human-made -— Mount Rushmore, Grand Canyon, Yosemite Falls, Old Faithful, the Las Vegas Strip and Hoover Dam.

It’s open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, through January 21, 2019.
