The 24th annual model display showcasing trains of various gauges were on display in two different rooms recently at the Beaufort County Branch Library on Scott Street. Children and adults looked on as trains wove their way through towns created to scale, train stations, parking lots, factories and wooded areas. The display, sponsored by the Beaufort Railroaders, draws hundreds of people to the library.

Four-year-old Lily Johnson could barely contain herself as Jim Bright’s G-guage model train whizzes by her.
