Ted, Terry, Bernie & David, our local heroes!
When we say 'built by the community for the community', we aren't kidding. Every weekend and many evenings this fall, you may have noticed four train enthusiasts going in and out of the old Highlandtown Library on Eastern Avenue. Hidden away in a back room, four dedicated volunteers have been constructing the new Highlandtown Holiday Train Garden. Terry Maillar, Bernie Deasel, David Eaton and Ted Baccala have donated hundreds of hour to lay track and lighting, build platforms, coordinate train routes, and add buildings, people and holiday details to make the Highlandtown Train Garden spectacular. When you visit the train garden in December, you're likely to meet one of these four local heroes keeping the trains 'on track'. Please thank them for their efforts.
