The Avalon Church of Christ is hosting its annual Holiday Train Show this week — and it is a perfect Christmas treat for the family. Get photos with Santa, play the train yard scavenger hunt, enjoy tasty snacks, and chat with Tidewater Big Train Operators who love to share the joy of their model train hobby.

Dr. Miele, a Norfolk veterinarian, has been a model train enthusiast since his childhood. He’s passed the love of trains onto his children — not least of all a son who is now a freight conductor for a major North American railroad!

Whether you’re a fan of model railroads already — or just wondering what all the fuss is about — you’ll want to make time in your busy schedule this week to join in the fun. Grab a friend and go!
