Setting Up Holiday Trains at Roger Williams Park Botanical Center — November 2023

The Little Rhody Division of the National Model Railroad Association is partnering with the Roger Williams Park Botanical Center to create two model train displays for the holidays.

Displays will be in the first two conservatories in the Botanical Garden at the park. Members of Little Rhody are working to create the layouts and set up the track and trains.
