St. Charles FMC hosts Christmas Village and Train Display

Nov 30, 2015 09:25AM ● Published by Neighbors Magazines

The St. Charles Free Methodist Church is opening its doors to children for their “Christmas Village and Train Display” featuring a Christmas village and electric trains, both modern and antique. The free display can be viewed at the church on Thursdays from 1–6pm (except Thanksgiving), and the same time on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from Nov. 5–Dec. 20.  From Jan 2-30 the display will be open on Saturdays from 1–6pm.

Special showings for Scouts, schools, assisted living field trips, or other groups, younger or older, can be arranged by e-mailing pastordave@stcharlesfmc.org.

 The display is different every year, and this year will be vastly different than previous displays. It features a Christmas theme with large town of about 100 porcelain buildings along with assorted figurines, ice skaters, a carousel, a Christmas tree farm, and even an airport with a flying plane.

The trains on the display are changed each day, with each of the days having a theme related to trains of different eras during the 20th century. The trains are all O gauge, a mix of modern and antiques, with many antique trains from the 1920's, 1930's and 1940's. There are several Thomas the Tank Engine trains that the children can run, along with bells, whistles, and other accessories for the kids to play with. 214 Walnut St., St. Charles. stcharlesfmc.org
