When you stop by the Fremont Public library for the next train club run on December 10th, we'll be featuring trains and boxcars of the season. Be sure and check out what's new at Trains on Display. If you would like to see more Spooky Trains, please join us at the Highland Park Public Library Special Train Run. Thomas will be there too.

Above, the display had Spooky Trains during our October Train Run, Campbell Food Trains during our September Train Run, and Patriotic Trains during our July Train Run. Hopefully you didn't miss the previous displays with the Food and Candy Trains, Military Equipment on trains, Circus Wagons on flatcars, a John Deere train and flatcars loaded with tractors and other implements, and at Christmas time, several Christmas Trains.

Have you ever heard of The Toy Train Barn? Several NCOG members had a chance to visit this place recently and really enjoyed it. Lots of trains on display and lots of trains running on many well decorated train layouts. It's a few hours from the Chicago area, but well worth the trip. Check out their website to learn more about The Toy Train Barn.

If you have RFD-TV on Satellite or cable, you might want to check out Mondays at 5:00 PM or Thursdays at 3:00 PM for some additional train programs.

Hope you are enjoying the changes. We try to update the site every other week or so, with at least new photos on our front page. But sometimes we take some time off to take pictures of more trains.

If you like our website and model trains tell your friends about NCOG trains. Ask about running one of your trains on our layout.
