Brandywine Christmas offers visitors of all ages a spectacular holiday experience, with the region’s greatest model train display along with Christmas trees decorated for the season with Critter ornaments made by our talented volunteers.

All aboard for a lifetime of memories!

The remarkable Brandywine Railroad O-gauge model train display features trains running on nearly 2,000 feet of track and includes more than 1,000 pieces, including locomotives, passenger and freight trains, and trolleys that pass through a small town, a farm, factories and even a carnival.
