Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and Trainville Hobby Depot will host a Model Train Show on Saturday, April 27th from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and on Sunday, April 28th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Mitchel Athletic Complex in Uniondale. The Complex is located at 1 Charles Lindbergh Boulevard.
This year’s Model Train Show includes door prizes, a genuine piece of LIRR Track as a “touch exhibit” and an information table for future Model Train and Hobby Events. Proceeds from the event will go to the Nassau Hurricane Recovery Fund to benefit uninsured and underinsured residents who suffered damage from super storm Sandy.
“This is a terrific way to combine affordable family fun and entertainment, while at the same time, helping those less fortunate – those hit hardest by Superstorm Sandy,” County Executive Mangano said.
Residents are invited to help support their neighbors who are struggling to rebuild, while enjoying exhibitors and Train Clubs such as: Trainville Hobby Depot, Long Island HOTtrack, Long Island Traction O Gauge Trolleys, TMB model railroad Club, Long Island N Trak, MTA LIRR Police and more.
Admission to the Train Show is a suggested donation of $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for children from 4-11 years of age. Additional donations accepted. For further Train Show information please call Trainville Hobby Depot at: (516) 433-4444, or visit their website at: www.trainville.com.
