The show features toy and scale model trains from the early 20th Century to today operating on three large displays. One is the Island of Sodor with Thomas and his friends being quite useful. Another features the large standard gauge trains of the pre-World War II era as well as subway cars and post war Lionel trains. Modern scale models dominate a third display, from the Erie's triplex of 1919 and the Union Pacific Big Boy of the 1940's to Amtrak and New Jersey Transit trains of today. Hours are 10 A.M. to 5 P.M. on Saturday and Noon to 5 on Sunday. A donation of $6.00 is asked of adults and children $2.00. Food is available from the church kitchen.

This display, including an 8' high plaster mountain, was erected in three weeks by the club members. You can take the train via Penn Station on NJ Transit. The church is three blocks east of the station In Pearl River.
