Union County, NJ – October 19, 2022 -- A family favorite holiday tradition is returning to Union County this year, as the Model Railroad Club opens the doors to the spectacular A. Paul Mallory Railroad Center for visitors of all ages, from Friday November 25 to Sunday, December 11.
Visitors to the Holiday Train Show and Open House can get an up-close look at special trains traversing the club’s huge 11,000 square foot layout. Included are famous trains of the past such as the Santa Fe’s famous Super Chief and the Pennsylvania Railroad’s Broadway Limited, along with AMTRAK’s Acela Express and many, many more.
“The Model Railroad Club has provided a generation of Union County residents and visitors with a unique window into the art, craft, history and technology of model railroading, and the Commissioner Board is very proud to support their work. We are all looking forward to the Holiday Train Show,” said Commissioner Rebecca L. Williams.
"The club is very excited to put on our holiday train show for our fans again this year. We hope that our trains can put a smile on the face of the little kid in all of us this holiday season,” said Model Railroad Club President Tim McCollum.
Visitors of all ages can view the sprawling HO scale layout at the Railroad Center from several different levels, including an eye-level view, a birds-eye view from a gallery, and “peek-a-boo” access points within the layout itself.
Also on display is a massive new expansion of the layout, enabling visitors to see how track is being hand-laid, and how mountains and scenery are created. Railroad Club members will also explain the planning and engineering behind the unique bi-level corkscrew loop.
Rounding out the displays are detailed G-scale and N-scale layouts along with other railroad memorabilia.
There is also a small play area and a railroad-themed gift shop at the Railroad Center.

It's not the sort of site you'd expect to see when going grocery shopping, but it's definitely one that's a head-scratcher if you've never experienced it before.
I, personally, don't believe I've ever seen this guy, but given the comments made by Mays Landing residents about what they've experienced makes me feel like I might be missing out. Apparently, there's a man who occasionally serenades Acme shoppers in the parking lot with his violin. Again, not exactly what you'd expect as you're walking in to get your shopping done for the week.
Someone spotted the man recently and asked the locals what they know about him. Residents have spoken and, don't worry, most say there's no need to freak out. The man plays in the parking lot for tips and, like any wary person, people weren't sure whether the sign he has displayed while performing is meant to scam people out of their money or not.
As it turns out, plenty of Mays Landing's Acme shoppers have seen him before and have revealed that he's actually the real deal. The sign basically says that he's got a family to provide for and that anything shoppers can spare is appreciated. A few people have shared their personal experiences with Acme' 'Violin Guy' and said that he's even taken their requests. If you watch the video, he really does sound awesome! That is, if it's actually him playing.
If you encounter this guy, do with the situation as you see fit. Still, I think the world would be a better place if we didn't automatically assume the worst from people. Have your guard up, sure. Remember, at the end of the day, what people choose to do with your donation is on them after that. At least you know in your heart that you acted with good intentions.
The way I see it, it's always cool to hear live music. I'm not mad about it. You want to give him a tip? Do it. If you don't want to, that's okay too. People have said, though, that he's taken their requests. So, maybe he really is legitimate?
Check out the video of 'Violin Guy' playing the parking lot HERE.
Don't even think of saying one of these words in front of someone from New Jersey.

To be fair, I think this word would annoy anyone, but taxes are ridiculous in The Garden State.
Never, in the history of ever, has someone ever relaxed when told to "relax." Especially not in Jersey.

This is the time of year when we start thinking about the people who are less fortunate.
And New Jersey people are some of the most generous people in the country.
Holiday charities bring out the best side of New Jerseyans.
One of the most heartwarming gestures I have seen this holiday season is a program put together by Somerset county to help those less fortunate.
It’s called adopt a family.
Since 2010, the Somerset County Board of County Commissioners has been supporting the Adopt-A-Family program by helping to raise almost $300,000.
In 2021, participating non-profit organizations received $26,245 through the Adopt-A-Family program.
According to the New Jersey Department of Health, more than 17,000 Somerset County residents were identified as food insecure in 2019.
Residents can help feed their neighbors in need by donating to the 13th annual Adopt-A-Family program.
A donation of $48 will feed a family of six, but any donation amount will be gratefully accepted.
Last year, Adopt-A-Family raised more than $26,000, which helped provide hundreds of Thanksgiving meals to in-need families.
This Thanksgiving, participating organizations hope to feed even more families with the help of generous donations through the Adopt-A-Family program.
Residents interested in donating can send a check or money order to any participating organization.
Donors who pay by check should write “Adopt-A-Family” on the memo line and enclose a completed donation form in an envelope with their check.
Donations postmarked by Saturday, Nov. 19, will help the most amount of people.
For more info or to donate online click here.
Even though the economy is tough, there are many people less fortunate than you. Help make their holiday season a little easier and brighter.

JEFFERSON – What started out as a potential blowout victory became a matter of who would blink last.
Jefferson would have no part of a game of bluff. But the Falcons needed a last-ditch effort in a game that featured three lead changes in the fourth quarter, including two in the final 75 seconds.
Quarterback Ryan Moran found Travis Osterhout on a 14-yard slant for the game-winning touchdown with eight seconds left to cap a wild fourth quarter in Jefferson’s 43-36 comeback win over Vernon Friday in a Super Football Conference American White showdown.
It was the sixth straight win for the Falcons (2-1) against their Sussex County rivals. Vernon dipped to 1-2.
“I can’t believe it. I knew we would have to do something like this to win. It’s a dream come true. I haven’t felt this way in a while,” said Moran, who was playing in his third game as a starter. “We worked on the game-winning play all week at practice. I knew it was going to be there. I saw two linebackers blitz and I knew he [Osterhout] was going to be there. I just can’t believe he ran it in.”
Check out the photo gallery, then continue reading.
The Vikings went up 13-0 in first quarter but Jefferson rallied in the second for a 21-13 lead. The game was tied at 21 by halftime, then the second-half fireworks lit up the evening sky.
Leading 36-35 with 1:15 left, it appeared Vernon was headed to its first victory over Jefferson since 2016. But Moran engineered a five-play, 75-yard drive with Osterhout hauling in a dart and weaving through the Vernon defense for the decisive score.
Vernon had taken a one-point lead when running back Gage Moskovitz scored his third TD and quarterback Derek Lazier connected with Franco Luna for a two-point conversion, his second of the night.
So many twists and turns defined the third quarter.
Jefferson took a 27-21 lead when Moran and wide receiver Jeff Evans hooked up for the second time. Vernon answered back on its next drive, eating up more than seven minutes with Moskovitz barreling over from the 1 with 15 seconds left and a 28-27 edge.
The fourth quarter started out with a bang as the Falcons reclaimed the lead when the Moran-to-Evans combination made good for a third time - this time on a 28-yard post pattern and a two-point conversion for a 35-27 lead.
“We were clicking all night. Everyone made big plays and our line got the job done,” Evans said. “There’s no one like Ryan [Moran]. We’ve been my best friends for years. It’s fun to have my friend as my quarterback.”
With the win, Jefferson remains a game behind Sparta and High Point in the SFC-American White. The Falcons have won two straight after dropping their season opener to High Point on Sept. 2.
Vernon has dropped two straight games since a season-opening win over Morris Hills.
Trailing 36-35 with 1:45 left to play following Vernon's go-ahead touchdown and two-point conversion, Moran hit receiver Jason Eisele for 43 yards on the first play of the final drive.
That put Jefferson in Vikings territory at the 42-yard line, setting up the game-winning touchdown three plays later.
Moran hit on 21 of 34 passes for 342 yards and five touchdowns.
For Vernon, Lazier finished with 140 passing yards and accounted for two touchdowns, including one in the air.
Moskovitz rushed for 172 yards on 34 carries and three touchdowns for Vernon.
“I’m really proud of our performance, but it is what it is. We’re going to come back next week even stronger than what we already are. We just have to bounce back. This loss obviously puts a chip on our shoulder. We’re going to keep working hard and get to the playoffs.” – Moskovitz
“I’m a big 'theme of the week' guy. Grit was last week and being a man was this week. You put those two together and that’s what you get tonight. It’s a great win for us. Vernon came to play. An incredible job by both teams tonight and a great night for high school football.” - Jefferson coach Jerry Venturino.
Jefferson hosts Wallkill Valley on Friday.
Vernon is back on the road at Lenape Valley (1-2) on Friday.
