Join the Black Diamond Society of Model EngineersĀ as they keep a holiday tradition alive since 1965. Featured will be 2 floors of sleek passenger and powerful freight trains in continuous operation, located at 900 East Macada Road, Bethlehem PA, 18017.

The first floor 650 square foot layout features models of O, On30 and S scale steam trains from the glory days of railroading to the mighty diesel locomotives of today, including prototype sights and sounds. Operating semaphores and signals further enhance the display. Visitors can even operate specific accessories.

The second floor 800 square foot HO scale display has a multitude of trains in operation, including a loaded coal train stretching to more than 100 cars powered by multiple diesel locomotives winding through mountain scenery. A miniature trolley travels between a village and a distant amusement park with both an operating ski lift and rides. Visitors can operate the park train, too.
