The annual Old City Hall train display was set to chug into town once again this year, with its grand opening Saturday, Nov. 29.
The display, which is free, is also scheduled to be open to the public every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through the end of December.
This year’s display is set to include annual favorites: Mayor Joe Malone’s Thomas the Tank Engine, Nancy Targonski’s New England Village, and Mikki Quinn’s Polar Express and Candyland. Zig Targonski has also reconstructed his double decker train display.
The train show is set to be even more extensive this year. Zig and Nancy Targonski are set to display various trains dating from the early 1900s up to the present; the collection is set to include G scale outdoor railroad trains, standard gauge, O gauge and traditional Lionel trains. Nancy Targonski will have a layout with a mountain and outdoor theme.
Malone is also set to display a large collection of O gauge trains with a Pennsylvania theme, and Bob Liberman was expected to feature train layouts of various gauges.
For the first time, a portion of the firehouse side of Old City Hall will be open and feature an additional train display. In all, visitors will find about 23 different trains at the show, zooming around their miniature terrain.
The Holiday Train Display is scheduled to be open to the public every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 4–8 p.m. through the end of December. For more information, or to schedule arrangements for special group shows outside of scheduled weekend hours, call Grace Archer, Bordentown City clerk, at (609) 298-0604, Ext. 6.
