Model railway days “between the years” at the railway museum

On 28 and 29 December 2023, the Darmstadt-Kranichstein Railway Museum will once again be holding its traditional Christmas Model Railway Days from 10 am to 5 pm. The focus will be on the exhibition and demonstration layouts as well as the museum’s numerous other models and showpieces. There will also be a small model railway exchange organised by our model building group. The extensive uniform exhibition is also open. Our cafeteria invites you to a cosy get-together in a historical atmosphere.

The event will take place in the heated museum building. Admission is free, a donation is gladly accepted. Due to the winter break in our engine shed, it is not possible to view the original vehicles. The volunteers of the railway world are looking forward to your visit!
