If you love trains around Christmas time, you'll love what you'll be able to see in the City of Utica.

The Frankfort United N-Trak (FUNTRAK) Model Railroad Club returns to the Oneida County History Center for its annual holiday exhibition. You can come aboard and enjoy the club's model trains and talk rail history with fellow enthusiasts of all ages. The model trains will be displayed in the main gallery Wednesday, December 27th through Saturday, December 30th from 10AM to 4PM. This event is family-friendly, accessible, and open to the public. Oneida County History Center is at 1608 Genesee Street in Utica, New York. What better way to celebrate the holiday season then checking out some amazing model trains.

While at the History Center, don’t miss the Not So Tiny Nutcracker Display, which features the collection of Joanne Gerace, former owner of Tiny’s Grill. Gerace has graciously loaned over six hundred nutcrackers for this must-see seasonal exhibit. Yes, you read that correctly. Over six hundred.
