The Trains are Coming!

The ever popular annual holiday treat - Model Train Exhibit - returns to Beaufort Branch, December 11 -15th.  Make plans now to bring your grandchildren!  I always drop by to check out what's new and to visit a few minutes with the railroaders. 

Event title:  Beaufort Railroaders Model Train Exhibit 
Description of event:  Jointly presented by the Beaufort Railroaders Model club and the library, the show features multiple model train layouts in scales from grand to tiny.
Date and time of event:  December 11-15 during open branch hours!
Location of event:  Beaufort Branch Library, 311 Scott Street, Beaufort, SC 29902
Price of Event:  Free and open to all ages

Contact:  Please call 255-6441 in advance to schedule group tours.

Please note: If you want to explore the significance of the Charleston and Savannah Railroad to our local Civil War history, I recommend Vital Rails by David Stone (available in the BDC and through our Local History sections) - and/or a visit to the Palmetto Battalion's Civil War re-enactment of the Battle of Pocotaligo going on this weekend.  See our prior Connections entry about the re-enactment.
