Over 500 people came to this opening art exhibit to see Angela's new paintings of Lionel Trains at Coco Vivo Gallery, 25 Broad Street, Charleston, SC. Train enthusiasts from the surrounding area brought their Lionel Angela Trotta Thomas boxcars and catalogs and she happily signed them.

The show, "The Magic of Toy Trains" will open Dec 7th at the First Friday Gallery and be open to the public through the end of the year.  Angela has a small Lionel operating toy train layout on display in the front window for the remainder of the holiday season.  This layout features a Angela Trotta Thomas train consisting of her Lionel engine and boxcars.  This layout will help introduce Lionel trains to the people of Charleston, SC during the holiday season.  If you are in the area during the holiday season, stop on by and see and experience the magic of Lionel trains on this operating train display.
