 a 1929 Ives train set that includes the engine, a baggage car and a buffet car to the Polar Express train of book and movie fame—Bill Albright’s collection of model trains will fascinate both the young and the nostalgic. Selected from a collection of more than 70, the museum will display more than 30 train sets along with several related pieces. Albright was introduced to trains as a boy when his father was a train mechanic on the Pennsylvania Railroad, and has collected trains since 1942.
