HOLIDAY ENTERTAINMENT: CHRISTMAS SEASON EVENT TO PUT ON YOUR CALENDAR NOW

By JC Leahy

CHRISTMAS MODEL TRAIN DISPLAY

The annual model train display in Ellicott City, Maryland, provides a fun springboard for Christmas shopping in the enamoring downtown Ellicott City.  This elaborate model train display usually runs from the first Saturday in December through the first Sunday in January.  You might want to mark you calendar now so you don't forget.  The 2010 show opens this coming Saturday.

The display is provided by the Ellicott City Fire Company #2.  It is situated at their firehouse, at 4150 Montgomery Road, Ellicott City, Maryland.  The Fire Company has been providing this display every year since 1997.

The display includes multiple model trains on an artfully crafted landscape.  For example, the 2009 display comprised 8 trains, including an Amtrak passenger train, a circus train, and a long freight train.  All trains are in motion -- through towns, across bridges, around mountains, and through tunnels.  The overall effect is delightful for children -- of all ages.  The passion that went into the design and crafting of the whole display is evident.

You can actually buy model trains and accessories at the firehouse.  The brand is Rail Master.


Mark your calendar for this event now, so you won't forget. Check hours of operation before you actually go.  Typiclly, the model train display is open on weekends and some weekdays.  For more information, call 410-313-2036.
