The Ursula C. Schwerin Library at New York City College of Technology will host an exhibit in its showcase windows of Lionel trains from the collections of Professors Nicholas Manos, Restorative Dentistry, and Robert Russo, Vision Care Technology, from December 9, 2008, through January 31, 2009, 300 Jay Street (at Tillary), Atrium 4th Floor, Downtown Brooklyn. The exhibit is free and accessible to the public Mondays through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., when College is open.

Remember the good old days, when life was simple and carefree? As a young child growing up in the 1940s, 50s or 60s, you could let your imagination take you to faraway places with model trains and other toys made by Lionel Corporation. Long before video games, iPods and the Internet, pre- and post-war children and adults had companies such as Lionel, Mark, Mattel and others, which allowed them to interact and enjoy railroading and other pastimes. Take a few minutes to enjoy the display and relive those “good old days.”
