SCARSDALE, N.Y. – The Greenburgh Nature Center is partnering with the Yonkers Model Railroad Club to present a special, six-day holiday season show titled “Trains – Your Ticket to the Great Outdoors” on Dec. 6-7, Dec. 13-14 and Dec. 20-21 from 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
Designed for train lovers of all ages, the show will feature a special 12-by18-foot display of HO gauge model trains traveling through countryside scenes of natural beauty, modeled on the terrain of upstate New York and New England.
Members of the railroad club will be on hand to talk about the trains and provide opportunities for visitors to examine some of the different kinds of train engines up-close. Members of the club and some of their trains were featured in the Grand Central Terminal 100th anniversary celebration.
Paul Greenburg of the Yonkers Model Railroad Club has designed and constructed some of the models and has been active as a model railroader for more than 50 years. He is a longtime resident of Greenburgh and has traveled by train throughout many parts of the world.
Members of the Nature Center can get in free. Nonmember adult tickets are $10, students and seniors tickets are $9, and children ages 2-12 are $8. Price includes regular Nature Center admission fee, which also includes admission to all of the Nature Center’s exhibits, including the live animal museum. All proceeds from the train show will help support the educational programs of the Nature Center and the Yonkers Model Railroad Club.
The Nature Center is at 99 Dromore Road, off Central Park Avenue.
