The Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History will host National Train Day for Autism on Saturday, May 9, 2015 from 9:30am-1:30pm. This will be a day of enjoying model trains as well as bringing awareness to those who are living with or have been affected by autism. The Museum will have various types of model train layouts, including a Thomas the Train layout and Little Lionel set, for children of different ages and needs to experience. These train sets are made possible by the Lionel Collectors Club of America (LCCA), a national, not-for-profit, volunteer organization. Other features include a sensory friendly room with puzzles and activities and special showings of the Museum’s Great Locomotive Chase movie. Several fun and educational crafts will also be available for children to enjoy as well as an hourly interactive story-time beginning at 10am.
