December 12/31 - North Little Rock, AR - Lionels at Laman

The dates for ALL ABOARD - LIONELS AT LAMAN will be:  December 12 - 31 during regular Library hours.  The Library is closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  Last year, more than 5,100 visitors attended this event. 
The layout has three main lines. The two tracks on the lower level will be equipped with Lionel POWERMASTERS for wireless control of Conventional trains, and the upper level with a 14-feet-long elevated bridge will be equipped with TMCC for wireless control of Legacy-equipped diesel and steam locos. Three displays will show vintage and modern trains.
The layout footprint is about 14x25 feet as a staggered offset design with five platforms. Two platforms show DEPT 56 lighted porcelain buildings with a holiday theme, two platforms are industrial districts with operating accessories, and two elevated platforms are "downtown" and "suburbia" with buildings and separate trolley lines.
A fun-to-do quiz based on the features of the layout will be offered to visitors. A drawing from the box of correct quizzes will be held and the winner will receive a free Lionel starter train set provided by the LCCA. In addition, the library will offer a door prize of a Lionel Polar Express train set to a lucky winner.
The opening ceremony will be Thursday, December 12, at 10 a.m.  Be sure to stop by.
