TRAIN LOVERS OF ALL AGES. WGAL NEWS 8’S TOSIN FAKILE TAKES
A CLOSER LOOK AT THE LONGTIME
FAMILY TRADITION.>>AS A LITTLE KID, I LIKED TO
PLAY WITH TRAINS, AND AS AN
OLDER KID, I STILL PLAY WITH
TRAINS. [LAUGHTER]
TOSIN: CLUB MEMBERS AND
CUSTOMERS CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF
THE TRAIN DISPLAY, ENGINES
CHUGGING OVER 12,000 FEET OF
TRACK.>>THAT’S WHY WE DON’T CALL US
THE MODEL RAILROAD. WE CALL IT THE MINIATURE
RAILROAD, BECAUSE IT’S OPERATED
AS A REAL RAILROAD. TOSIN: BARBARA BUSHEY HAS BEEN
COMING TO SEE THE TRAINS SINCE
SHE WAS JUST A KID.>>EVEN THOUGH I WAS THE GIRL IN
THE FAMILY AND IT WAS A
TRADITION FOR THE BOYS TO HAVE
THE TRAINS, I THINK I PLAYED
WITH THEM AS MUCH AS THEY DID. TOSIN: A TRADITION SHE ENJOYS
SHARINGWITH HER GRANDKIDS.>>THE TRAINS ARE NOT AS VITAL A
PART OF OUR SOCIETY TODAY, AND

FOR THE YOUNGER FOLKS TO KNOW
THIS.>>A LOT OF OUR MEMBERS, THEY
SEE WHAT THE NEXT GENERATION IS,
AND TRY TO STIR UP PLENTY OF
INTEREST. TOSIN: THE MINI RAILROAD DISPLAY
HAS BEEN ON TRACK FOR 75 YEARS.>>BESIDES THE TRADITION, THE
ENTHUSIASM TO KEEP THIS GOING,
IT’S WELL WORTH IT. TOSIN: IN YORK, TOSIN FAKILE,
