All aboard for the fundraising model train show in Levittown

Model train enthusiasts and kids of all ages are likely to enjoy an upcoming event that will also raise money for a worthy cause.

Trainville Hobby Depot will host a model train show on Saturday, April 13 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Levittown Hall, located at 201 Levittown Parkway in Hicksville. Charitable donations are being accepted at the exhibit to support the Nassau County Police Explorers Program.

The show will include operating model layouts from area model railroad clubs in several different scales coordinated by Trainville Hobby Depot. 

“We’re proud to partner with Trainville Hobby Depot to offer this model train show while raising charitable funds for the Nassau County Police Explorers,” Town of Oyster Bay Councilwoman Laura Maier said in a written statement. “Assisting groups that not only bring a fun and educational experience to residents of all ages, but also help preserve our history in understanding the railroad’s role in our heritage, is a great cause.”

The Nassau County Police Explorers Program is a career education program for teens that offers an insight to determine if a law enforcement career is the right fit for them. Police officers (both active and retired) serve as advisors for the youth in the program, teaching young people to make ethical choices and preparing them to become responsible and caring adults.

Admission to the model train show is $7 for those aged 12 and up; $4 for children ages 4 to 11 and entry for children under the age of 4 is free. Parents may bring a secure step stool of their own for children to stand on.
