Keeping a carefully eye on the valuable cargo, zoo guests choose wisely from multiple gondolas on display (Mark Edwards, image).
Young and the young at heart were captivated by the large scale model railroad display at the Charles Paddock Zoo (Mark Edwards, image).
Parents were often overheard advising their children to “take only one” so there was enough cargo to be shared among the crowds (Mark Edwards, image).
Special thanks to CCCGRS members (left to right), Bob Cochran, Mark Edwards, Will Kastner, Jesse Soto, Walt Wajda, and Bernie Meister, for their efforts and enthusiasm sharing the garden railroad hobby with zoo guests during Holiday Magic 2021 (A. Baker, image).
