MADISON – All aboard! “Trains on Main” is about to pull into town.

“It’s time to get on board as we officially kick off the Trains on Main Scavenger Hunt. Join us for a press conference and ribbon cutting on May 19 at 10 a.m. in the Roundhouse located in beautiful, historical downtown Madison,” Sherry Brukner said.

Brukner works as Events and Marketing Coordinator for Madison Chamber of Commerce.

In case of rain, the ribbon cutting will be held at Old Black Bear at 212 Main St. After the ribbon cutting, Dan and Josie from WDRM-FM (iHeart Media) will join guests for an inaugural trip through the hunt. “Come join us for the fun,” Brukner said.

Madison Chamber of Commerce, working in conjunction with the City of Madison and Huntsville-Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau, “has created a fun and educational way for tourists and residents to learn more about the colorful history of downtown Madison,” Brukner said.

Participants will ‘hunt’ for nine bronze trains that are permanently placed in various locations in downtown Madison. Clue cards are available at the chamber at 130 Park Square Lane in Hogan Family YMCA or at City Hall, 100 Hughes Road.

The clues, developed by Madison Station Historical Preservation Society, “will educate and inform participants as they search for the trains. At the end of the scavenger hunt, participants should bring their completed clue card to the Madison Chamber of Commerce to receive a prize,” Brukner said.

Trains on Main will be a permanent attraction in downtown Madison, available to train spotters 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. “Come out and hunt for these beautifully designed bronze trains, created by Everett Cox, a local artist specializing in bronze sculptures,” she said.
