Trains Arrive at Union Station

Most of you are familiar with the model train display that is set up every holiday season at Union Station at the east end of the main hall. But I discovered that another exhibit is there year round right next to the Post Office. What fun. And a perfect fit for the station.

The Erector Set constructions in the center of this picture actually work with the original motors. I'd forgotten all about Erector Sets... even though I had one!

Don't know what the movie was... but the ads made me hungry.

A gentleman who was one of the managers of the display told me that it will be up until fall when it will be time to move it over to the east side for Christmas.

The display really attracted quite a bit of attention while I was there... the young ones loved it.
