Grandparents who are searching for holiday activities to share with their grandchildren can visit the A. Paul Mallery Model Railroad Center in Union Township and enjoy the Holiday Sound and Light Show, a seasonal display centered around an elaborately detailed HO scale railroad layout.

Visitors can also view a large, double-decker N-scale layout at the Railroad Center and visit the snack bar, railroad gift shop, and toddler play area.

The Railroad Center is located in a mixed-use area of Union County’s Lenape Park. It was built and is operated by the non-profit organization The Model Railroad Club, Inc. under an arrangement with the Union County Department of Parks and Recreation.
