Families visit the Holiday Train Show at Old City Hall last year.
All aboard! The fourth annual Holiday Train Show is set to stop at Old City Hall.
The Old City Hall Restoration Project Committee of Bordentown City is set to kick off the train show Thanksgiving weekend.
The show is set to open 12 p.m. Nov. 29 - Dec. 1 at Old City Hall, 11 Crosswicks St. Bordentown, and remain open until crowds diminish in the evening.

The Holiday Train Show is presented by avid model train and railroad memorabilia collectors Mayor Joe Malone, Commissioner Zig Targonski, Nancy Targonski, Mikki Quinn and Bob Liberman.
Commissioner Zig Targonski and his wife, Nancy, plan to display various trains from their collection dating back to early 1900s. These include a large collection of Garden Rail (‘G’ Gauge), Standard Gauge, O-Gauge; On30 and traditional Lionel Trains.
This year the Targonski's display features a new boardwalk presentation and New England village.

A local train club will be operating and displaying an HO switching layout.
