Winter Model Train Display at Mahwah Public Library

Donald Cooper

Beginning November 10 and running through November 16, the Museum will be hosting a special operating exhibit of our “O” gauge Lionel trains at the Mahwah Public Library, 100 Ridge Rd Mahwah, NJ 07430.  These trains were donated to us by Abby and George Margolis in memory of Jerome Lewis Margolis, owner of Kinchley’s Tavern in Ramsey, New Jersey.  Built by the museum’s train crew, the display will consist of an 8’ X 8’ layout containing two operating tracks.  Admission for this special exhibit is free.
