Jefferson Rec Presents Holiday Train Open House
You’re invited to an open house of holiday trains as the Jefferson Township Recreation Department welcomes the BD&W Club of Jefferson, the Northern NJ N-Trak Club, and the Pocono Mountain Garden Railway Society to Camp Jefferson, 81 Weldon Road in Lake Hopatcong on Saturday, December 14 and on Sunday, December 15 from 10 am to 5 pm each day. Come to see three model railroading displays in action at Camp Jefferson, 81 Weldon Road, Lake Hopatcong!
The BD&W Club will be running their HO scale trains in their Camp Jefferson Train Cabin, the Northern NJ N-Trak Club will be located in the Recreation Hall running their “N” scale trains, and The Pocono Mountain Garden Railway Society will be running their G-scale trains in the Community Lodge. On display will be large and small trains, smoking locomotives with lots of sounds — old and new generations.
Bring the whole family, invite friends and children of all ages for pre-holiday fun. As this event will be held indoors in three buildings at Camp Jefferson, the event is rain or shine.
