WILTON, Conn. -- You can still enjoy the Wilton Historical Society's Great Trains Exhibit, which runs through Monday, Jan. 19.

The hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays. Admission is free for members and children. Nonmember adults pay $10 for entry. 

Six displays are set up for the exhibit, featuring multiple train layouts with tiny towns and landscapes, complete with a multitude of buildings, tunnels and two working ferris wheels. One display is set in an alpine area with a working gondola lift.

The interactive exhibit allows visitors of all ages to activate whistles and raise signs. 

"It's so much fun. You see the reaction on the kids to all of this," said volunteer trainman Matthew Hamar of Wilton. "I enjoy doing this, and I love it when the kids come in. I have a wonderful time."

The Wilton Historical Society is located at 224 Danbury Road. Call 203-762-7257 or visit its website for more information.
