Polar Express makes a stop at Beachwood

The Beachwood staff brought the very popular book The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg to life featuring a winter bulletin board depicting scenes from the book.

Staff member Fred Lovinfosse added a working trolley to the display. He created a background village scene by taking pictures of his own Christmas village stores, enlarging the pictures and pasting them onto foam core.

Children and adults enjoy watching the trolley and Thomas the Train travel along the tracks.

Fred is a member of the Ocean County Society of Model Railroaders.  The model railroaders love the hobby and come together to share knowledge with others.   While promoting the hobby they have fun showcasing displays for  people to see all around the New Jersey area at various sites.
