Youngwood model train display attracts enthusiasts, both young and old

Nothing says Christmas more than a model train display decorated for the holidays.

Train lovers both young and old will get one more chance to view such a display from 1-4 p.m. Sunday at the Youngwood Historical & Railroad Museum, located at the former Youngwood Station, 1 Depot St.

“The little ones — they really like it,” said Ray Alincic, YHRA president.

“We have senior citizens who come for an hour and just sit and watch,” said his wife, Pat. “I guess it takes them back to their childhood.”

The Christmas Train and Village Display features two O-gauge trains, two HO-gauge trains and an O-gauge trolley car.

Admission on Sunday is $3 for students, $5 for adults and $4 for senior citizens (over 55). Children 5 and under are free.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
