Twilight Night Runs 2019

Our new event for 2019 is here! The Hamilton Model Engineers present their 2019 Twilight Night Runs, happening once a month all throughout the year. Rides begin from 5pm and run until 9pm, with tickets starting at $2 per person and concession tickets available. The next Night Run is Saturday March 16th, weather permitting.

This Family-Friendly event offers plenty of space for a picnic dinner in the park, and a great Saturday evening event to have a train ride. Please remember that closed toe shoes must be worn and that Under 2's ride for free, with a fare-paying passenger. We look forward to seeing you all for a night of fun!
