A model train garden built by volunteers and housed in Engine House #41 at 520 S. Conkling Street in Baltimore City. Open to the public and it is free. It is sponsored by CSX, The Baltimore City Fire Department and the Southeast Community Development Corporation.
On Thursday, November 29, 2012 the Highlandtown Train Garden held Sponsor Night. Many sponsors and their families came to be the first persons to see the train garden. It officially opens on Friday, November 30 at about 6:30 pm. The sponsors brought with them materials that were related to their businesses or associations. Cookies made by Carol Hartke and several kinds of cider were offered.
On November 18, 2012 the Highlandtown Train Garden was moved from its storage area to Fire House # 41 at 520 S. Conkling St. Here the "engineers" are putting the final touches on the train garden so it will be ready for visitors beginning on Friday, November 30, 2012 from about 6:30 pm to 8 pm. For the hours of operation of the train garden for 2012 refer to those that are posted on this blog.
