The Newbern Depot Museum got off to a very good start, the first Saturday, in February, with 37 people coming by to visit. Among the new items was a new train board for the Lionel trains. This was constructed by city workers in January. The new board is 16 feet long, as compared to 12 feet long with the original board. The width remains five feet wide. The new board sits about 10 inches higher than the original, and now stands above the display cases. Here's thanking the city workers who constructed this, and we appreciate the job.
