With a late season cold snap expected this weekend, the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders reminds those seeking a fun indoor activity that the A. Paul Mallery Model Railroad Center is open during its regular public hours on Saturday, March 11, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Visitors can tour the elaborate layout and see a massive extension in the works.
