The Taltree Garden Railway may be open for the season, but staff and volunteers are still working on cleaning up the track and preparing the vignettes for display. “We’re computerizing the train set-up this year,” said Dave Simkowski, Taltree’s Railway Specialist. “It will go live a section at a time starting in May.”

Through the month of April, staff will attempt to have at least one train running during open hours, but there will be times when work on the track will reduce the number of loops on which the trains can travel.

The Taltree Railway Garden was designed to look beautiful whether the trains are running or not. “We wanted visitors to be able to see the plants come alive in early spring,” said Taltree Horticulture Manager Patty Stimmel about the early opening. “The Japanese maples, crabapples and azaleas are providing lots of color right now.”

The state-of-the-art water collection system captures rainwater for use in the garden’s six water features and for supplemental irrigation. Hundreds of varieties of plants, from dwarf conifers to low-lying perennials, create a landscape through which trains travel on integrated railway loops. The unseasonably warm spring has made it much more pleasant to work in the garden, Simkowski said.

The Taltree Railway Garden is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily through October 31, with trains running from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Admission is $10; $8 for seniors 55-plus, students and military with valid ID; $5 for children age 5 through 12; free for children 4 and under and Taltree members.
