 CELEBRATE NATIONAL TRAIN DAY - MAY 12th! (1742 hits)
May 12th Celebrations

On May 12th, America has one mission – celebrate the joy of trains and train travel! The 5th annual National Train Day is taking over four of the country’s most iconic train stations – in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Los Angeles – to host free, fun activities, interactive exhibits and train displays that will bring the ‘rail way’ to life for attendees both young and old.

Attend one of the four major events or explore hundreds of other celebrations across the country. If you don’t see a National Train Day event in your area, you can always host your own event and bring the celebration to life in your community: http://www.nationaltrainday.com/events/host/


Train Equipment Displays

Attendees in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Los Angeles will have the chance to tour private luxury railcars, freight and commuter trains, as well as current Amtrak equipment. There will be no ticketing system this year, so be sure to arrive early! Space is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. Exhibits open at 11:00 a.m. on May 12.

Are you an Amtrak Guest Rewards MasterCard cardholder? If so, follow the Fast-Track signs to skip the line and avoid the wait.

American Sign Language Interpreted Tours for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing at 12pm & 2pm.


Train Contest

The National Train Day Gallery is a space for all of us to share the images and stories that make trains and train travel special to us.

By uploading your photos and videos, and submitting your stories, you will be entered for a chance to win!

See more, live more, share more – bring your experiences to life!

The National Train Team will select entries that speak to our mission of sharing the joy of trains and train travel and reward them with great prizes!
