Christmas Trains Keep Chugging Along

For over ten years, Gerald ‘Smitty’ Smith, set up model trains running on O gauge track as part of the Historical Society’s Christmas treats for youngsters and adults alike. He passed away in 2014 but his legacy lives on through the efforts of Joe Timko and his young understudy, Travis Robertson who became enamored with trains at an early age. He became Smitty’s engineer in 2008 when he was six years old and has helped out every year since. The display will be set up in the vintage Township Hall on the grounds of the Vicksburg Historic Village for three Sundays, beginning with the events for Christmas in the Village, with the trains running from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. They will also be open on December 13 and 20, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
