Lubbock Model Railroad Association supports children through reading program

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Lubbock Model Railroad Association (LMRA) will be showing their support for children attending the Mahon Library Summer Reading Program.

Children attending the reading program are excited to see the model trains and the members of the LMRA are equally excited to share their hobbies with them.

Joe Price, a member of the association, has worked with model trains for over twenty years and thinks it is important to share trains and railroads with the children of today. "When they come in the door and their eyes light up and their faces light up, we've gotten all the thank you we need for sharing this."

Price says he is pleased the LMRA can show their support to the children attending the reading program and can show them how easy it is to set up model trains. "You can do whatever you want with the trains," says Price. "Just let your imaginations take you."

LMRA will have their model trains set up in the community room at the library July 1 through July 3 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day. They welcome any questions the community has regarding the model trains.
