Ernie and John Bianco's front yard on Adele Avenue has been attracting train lovers young and old since 1977, when the father and son decided to extend their Christmas tree train through their front window onto a platform. The attraction has grown since then to include two larger sets of tracks on the front lawn. Photo by Michelle Le.

Thanks Ernie & John for the enjoyment for our children while they were growing up. Now they are bringing their children, our grandsons and granddaughters, to see an exciting exhibit which has grown bigger and more entertaing over the years. Your concerted efforts continue to bring a pleasure we look forward to annually.
