QUINCY, Pa. — A Franklin County, Pa., man will open his private model train collection to the public three times in December and January to raise money for St. Andrew School in Waynesboro, Pa.

Charlie Kauffman, of 7170 Anthony Highway, has a 16-foot by 32-foot building on his property. Inside are O-scale model trains and scenery including saw mills, a circus and the former iron company that is now Penn State Mont Alto’s campus.

The display will be open to the public on Dec. 4, Dec. 11 and Jan. 8 from 1 to 4 p.m. Admission will be by donation in support of the school.

Kauffman said he photographed scenes and recreated them in quarter-inch scale.

His property is one-tenth of a mile north of Twin Kiss.
