Another Great NJ Hi-Railers Show was held on 12/1/19!

December 1, 2019

Today we had a great train show!! Tons of folks came to see the country’s largest model railroad. We had kids playing with the Sopranos layout using club engines and cars that we got from Lionel. These LionChief engines are truly tough engines as kids put them through their paces.

We now use three LionChief engines on the layout, one at the refinery and two at the coal tipple. At the coal tipple our guest can unload Lionel, Atlas and MTH coal hoppers. Total blast to watch the children operate the accessories from MTH, Menards, Lionel and our custom hand-built items.

Today’s raffle was / is a Lionel LionChief Ready to Run End of the Line Set. In addition, we gave a way a Lionel Pennsylvania coach car, item 6-35274 to a lucky guest.

The Sopranos layout was super busy due to the fact last weekend we took that layout to SopranosCon and 10,000 people had the opportunity to see the actual Bobby B. Garage layout.

 The scavenger hunt was a big hit and one young lady found over 70% of the items. So, she got some free food from Chef Vincent.

Here are some pictures of the day.

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas.

Special thanks to Lionel

Today we visited the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research where they were presented a donation of $1000 from the proceeds of the NJ Hi-Railers annual calendar sale. 

Thank you to everyone who purchased a calendar.

We produce this calendar with the intention of donating a portion of the proceeds to a charity close to the hearts of the members.  Loved ones of several members, myself included, have been affected by this terrible disease and this donation goes a small way towards finding a cure.  

Our 2020 calendar is underway and will be available for purchase online, at our shows; and at the OGR Magazine 50th Anniversary Party to be held at the HJ Hi-Railers on October 20th, 2019.
