New to Arduino, learning.
I want to be able to turn on an animations (example: a building on fire or station sounds) on my train layout with a momentary push button, then to turn off automaticaly 2-3 minutes latter.
Can I use one Arduino Uno board for several independent animations on my layout? Or I need a different board for each animation? I have several animations that I want to be able to work this way.

Yes you can.
What are you using to move things? One way might be a small servo. 2560 based board like a Mega can control 48 servo's. Supply power, Gnd, control signal to each servo.
Or a small solenoid, with an Uno and board like my shift register/N-channel MOSFET board to sink current thru the solenoid coils to energize them.
