Trains on Main Game Objective

The objective of Trains on Main is to find eight bronze trains, crafted by local bronze sculpture artist, Everett Cox, that have been permanently placed throughout Historic Downtown Madison. Before participating, you will need to pick up your clue card at the Madison Chamber of Commerce or City Hall. Clues on the card, provided by the Madison Station Historical Preservation Society, will educate and inform each individual who sets out to find the trains.

At the end of the scavenger hunt bring your clue card and findings back to the Madison
Chamber of Commerce Office and pick up your prize.

Afterward, you can share your success on social media! Don’t forget to tag
