Jingle Rails - The Great Western Adventure

500 W. Washington St., Indianapolis, IN 46204

Downtown

DATES

December 15 to January 15, 2018



The Eiteljorg Museum’s Jingle Rails: The Great Western Adventure is a journey to the Great American West – the real West and the West of the imagination. The popular locomotive wonderland is an Indianapolis family tradition. New this year: Hollywood!

Visitors can expect to see nine working model trains wind past the local treasures of downtown Indianapolis, including the Eiteljorg Museum, Monument Circle, Union Station and Lucas Oil Stadium, where you will hear veteran Colts radio announcer Bob Lamey call a game. The trains then head through the national parks of the American West, passing legendary sites, including grand railway lodges, Northwest Coast Native villages, and wonders both natural and human-made—Mt. Rushmore, Grand Canyon, Yosemite Falls, Old Faithful, the Las Vegas Strip, Hoover Dam and much more.

Every canyon and mesa, every lodge and geyser is created by Paul Busse and his brilliant team at Applied Imagination. Busse’s inventive holiday creations are rare and only seen in cities like New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C. -- and Indianapolis.

Highlights:

  • Family photo op with a near-life-size train engine model, made of all-natural materials.
  • Eight ultra-sized G-scale/gauge model trains
  • Nearly 1,200 feet of track
  • More than 30 features including:
