Reading Terminal Market Unveils This Year's Holiday Train Display

By Mike Dougherty

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- All aboard! The massive model train exhibit at the Reading Terminal Market is up and running.

"We took the train down here, actually. We're train fanatics."

Mark Faulkner and his grandchildren made a special trip from Phoenixville just to see the elaborate train display at Reading Terminal Market.

"We got tunnels, we got villages, we got ornaments, pretty much I'd say one square block of this market."

Trains roll along on about one third of a mile worth of track in total. Faulkner's granddaughter Kelsey was wearing a big smile as she played with a Thomas the Tank Engine train from behind the glass.

"I like kind of like pushing the buttons and seeing things move."

If you want to push the buttons to see the trains move, the setup will be on display until New Year's Eve.
