Train exhibit to benefit children's home

Mike's Train House in Guilford Industrial Park is presenting "The Magical World of Lionel Trains," to raise money for St. Vincent's Center for Abused Children in Timonium.

Billed as the world's largest mobile model railroad, the exhibit is housed in a large customized trailer. It runs seven to 11 trains that stop and start automatically.

Visitors will travel through all four seasons as the trains crisscross a miniature America.

The display contains five miles of wiring and uses enough electricity to run two homes. It also has theatrical lighting and a studio-quality sound effects system.

Exhibit hours are noon to 8 p.m. today, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. tomorrow and Sunday.

The cost is $1 for adults, with all proceeds going to provide a festive holiday for the 70 residents at St. Vincent's.

Information: 381-2580.


Long Reach: 9000 block of Queen Maria Court: Police responded to a sounding alarm and found a sliding glass door open Tuesday. The home was ransacked.
