The library is happy to announce that model trains are returning this year, with more trains running than ever.  We are welcoming back the South Jersey S-Gaugers to the library with their interactive model train display.  The display will be open from 10 – 3 for everyone to see on December 8 and 9 and again on December 15 and 16.  The South Jersey S-Gaugers display features a highly detailed, 26’ x 12’ sectional layout with three levels.  It is capable of operating AC, DC or DCC and can utilize American Flyer, HiRail and 1/64th scale locomotives and rolling stock.  There are so many features on this layout, you won’t want to miss it.

We will also be giving out FREE coloring books featuring local spots in Haddon Heights, as well as selling tickets for our annual train giveaway.  This year’s giveaway features one 1950s vintage set and one brand new modern set.  Both are valued at $300.  We are extremely grateful to Jim Mercurio from Roads and Rails for donating these items.  Stop by the library for more information and to enter the giveaway.  All proceeds benefit the library.  This event couldn’t have been put together without Roads and Rails, Heights in Progress, the Atlantic Division of the TCA and the South Jersey S-Gaugers.  Many thanks go those involved.  Happy Holidays!
