The free model train program at Christ Memorial Episcopal Church in Danville will hold its 15th annual Christmas party on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon.
The church, at the corner of Pine and East Market streets, will provide holiday refreshments – including coffee, tea, cocoa, mulled hot cider, fruit punch, pretzels, holiday candy, and lots of homemade Christmas cookies – during Saturday’s free Christmas party.
“We have a sparkling Christmas tree, 1,000 icicle lights, holiday decorations everywhere, and many other wonderful things to show visitors – puffing steam engines, train whistles and horns, our fiberoptic fireworks, 30 pushbuttons that operate crossing guards, cattle and log loaders, an oil derrick; and visitors of all ages can run and operate everything,” says Bob Bomboy, who first named the Saturday Trains in 2005. “Families should bring their cameras to take pictures of their children with the trains.”
Donald Tappe of Danville will also run his O-Gauge Christmas train loaded with candy and special holiday cars.
During the past 15 years more than 12,000 children and adults have visited and played with the trains every Saturday, delighting in the ice skaters and skiers, the unloading coal cars, the operating sawmill, the lighted Rio Grande Railway station, and the miniature watchmen who run out of their shanties, swinging their red lanterns whenever a train comes rushing by.
