National Train Day at the Rail Yards on May 12, 2012

Come and join in the fun and celebration. The Albuquerque Rail Yards is open to the public this Saturday, May 12th from 10 AM - 5 PM for National Train Day at the Wheels Museum.
Located at the Albuquerque Rail Yards at 1100 2nd St., SW in Albuquerque, NM (from I-25, exit on Lead, turn left on 3rd St., left on Cromwell to 2nd street). There will be model trains and real train rides. A fantastic car show by the Rainbow Riders. Lots of demonstrations, food trucks, the world's fastest motorcycle and music by Twisted Mojo and Jasper McCoy.

You can also buy a chance to win trips on the Durango Silverton Rail Road and the Cumbres Toltec Rail Road!

Bring your friends, bring your family, bring your neighbors! Bring your cameras! If you have never seen the Albuquerque Rail Yard, get ready to be amazed. A stunning and historical architectural site which should be preserved as it is an important part of New Mexico's history.


  1. As part of National Train Day, each major market event featured live entertainment, interactive and educational exhibits, kids’ activities, model train displays and tours of Amtrak equipment, freight and commuter trains, and notable private railroad cars. This is really a great event for all train lovers. Find out about model trains online.

  2. Hello there! This is a good read. Keep it up! I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about us by train. I'm glad to stop by your site and know more about us by train.
    Railroad companies in the United States are generally separated into three categories based on their annual revenues: Class I for freight railroads with annual operating revenues above $346.8 million (2006 dollars), Class II for freight railroads with revenues between $27.8 million and $346.7 million in 2000 dollars, and Class III for all other freight revenues. These classifications are set by the Surface Transportation Board.
    We’ve put a lot of effort into making each of our train packages special and exciting. There are a few, though, that we really love.
