Winter (Not Christmas) Trains and Villages

If you've visited any of our Big Christmas Trains pages, you know that we list Christmas trains and villages of all shapes and sizes. The products in this section are decorated for winter, but not for Christmas. Sure, they look great with Christmas trains and villages, but after the Christmas tree comes down you can still celebrate winter's frosty charms with these fine products.




Silver Moon Express Wolf Art Electric Train CollectionAl Agnew's Silver Moon Express is a finely detailed model as well as a finely crafted art piece. Click for a bigger photoAl Agnew's Silver Moon Express - If you want to celebrate the Winter Solstice in a truly "wild" fashion, you might want to take a look at the Hawthorne Village Silver Moon Express Subscription Plan Train. This subscription train has wintry blue and silver colors, as well as paintings by Al Agnew that feature wolves and snowy landscapes. (For a closeup of the locomotive click here.)

This train became unavailable in 2012, but is back, possibly in limited quantities. (Actually all of these trains are limited editions, but some are more limited than others.) If you're interested in Al Agnew's work, or if you decorate with a silver and blue theme at the holidays, this is a unique opportunity. Please click on either photograph for more pictures and details.

Accessories for Trains and Villages on This Page

Hawthorne Village Train Accessories - As different as they may look, all of the Hawthorne Village trains on this page are mechanically interchangeable. They are On30 trains, built on frames made by the Bachmann Corporation, the world's largest model train manufacturer. The track they all use is the same EZ-Track that Bachmann sells for HO trains, so if you order more than one Hawthorne Village train, you can use the track from each set interchangeably. You can also always get extra Bachmann EZ-Track pieces as well as Bachmann parts and service on your Hawthorne Village trains. A few extra track pieces and other Hawthorne Village accessories you may find useful are provided below for your convenience.
