HANCOCK HOLIDAY MOUNTAIN RAILROAD!

Preparation for the 14th Annual Hancock Holiday Mountain Railroad is on track! The elaborate miniature railroad, which will run daily 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. through January 2nd, will delight visitors of all ages as it winds its way through the holiday scenery. Free to the public, this display will be located in the lower concourse level near the entrance of The Hancock Observatory.

Over three million Chicagoans and visitors have enjoyed this wonderful holiday scene over the past twelve years. This year’s 1,400-square-foot model train exhibit features 12 trains nestled in a glen of snow-covered trees with attractions along the rails, including an animated tree farm, a cable car to Rudolph’s Island of Misfit Toys, a Snowman family, a ski slope, a working Christmas carnival, the North Pole, a Cows on Parade section, a skating rink, a reindeer barn, and a Christmas Village with dramatic waterfall and special Christmas train geared toward young children.

In addition to the Hancock Holiday Railroad, the Hancock Observatory is open for views of the city buzzing with holiday excitement.
