      In the tradition of family exhibitions for the Holiday Season, the Barron Arts Center in Woodbridge, New Jersey will once again host an exhibition of model trains curated by Colonia resident Michael Gelesky.

      The exhibition will officially open on Saturday, November 30, from 2pm-4pm.

      Join us for a FREE public reception that coincides with the Woodbridge Township Annual Tree Lighting hosted by Mayor John E. McCormac On December 6, 2019
      from 5-7pm. The exhibition can be viewed Monday through Friday 11 am-4 pm and Saturdays and Sundays 2-4 pm.
      Exhibit is available to schools & groups. Call 732-634-0413 to make a reservation.

      The display of over 300 feet of track will feature a moving, operating playground and three towns including Main Street U.S.A., a small town in the snowy mountains, The Boardwalk with a Ferris Wheel and Tilt-A-Whirl surrounded by an operating monorail. Eleven different trains will be used in the display with four trains operating at all times. The layout will be a complete walk-around-display viewed in the round. Display cases featuring several gauges from N-scale through G-scale will also be on view.

      Trains have been a passion for our “Trainman” curator Michael Gelesky since the age of five when he received his first train, a Lionel, from his parents. To this day, Mike keeps his childhood dream alive in the basement of his home which has been transformed into a train station. He has train memorabilia such as pictures of classic trains, old railroad stock certificates and a layout to which he is continually adding.

      Mike resides in Colonia, New Jersey with his wife Donna-Marie. Mike and Donna have two children, Stephanie & Justin who assist with his train exhibit project every year.
