All aboard Seattle Center’s winter train

My kids love the miniature winter village and train layout at the Seattle Center. I didn’t tell them I was here sketching on Tuesday so they wouldn’t be too disappointed for missing out.
Conductor Lawrence Hawk said the winter village is owned by the city and has been in the Center House for 20 years. “It’s nice to hear people say, ‘My folks brought me and now I’m bringing my kids,'” he said.
“It’s beautiful,” said Pam Marquardt, who had come to watch her daughter perform with her Issaquah school choir. “It’s a good tradition. I’ve brought all my kids here when they were little,” she said.
The village features turn-of-the-century buildings, snow, lights and a towering depot from where kids can drive the train. The attraction is free, although a $2 donation is suggested.
