Arizona Big Train Operators Holiday Open House Tours

This is one of our family's must-do holiday events.  Maybe it's because we have a house full of little boys, but I'm pretty sure I'd still be going to see the trains every year even if I didn't have kids. 

Saturday and Sunday, December 11th and 12th
Saturday and Sunday, December 18th and 19th
5:30 to 8:30 pm

Various homes are open throughout the valley, with four homes and one medical center in Mesa where you can see the fantastic train displays.  There is a new display at Cardon Children's Medical Center at Banner Desert Hospital that they say is a must-see!  I would also recommend the home of Dennis Sirrine who has hundreds and hundreds of train cars and an amazing layout that takes over the very large backyard. 

Go here for more information.  You can click on maps at the bottom of that page to see the locations that are participating in the open houses.

The open houses are free.  Donations are accepted and go towards train displays in childrens' hospitals in the valley.  Donations are tax deductible.

Have fun!
