Electric trains to be given away

The Loose Ties Model Railroad Club will give away three free electric trains at area malls Sunday.

The club will open on its usual second weekend of the month at the Columbia Mall, where one train will be given away, and will also send its traveling display of model electric trains to the Susquehanna Valley Mall near Selinsgrove, where it will give away two trains.

"It's our way of spreading the joy of Christmas," said club president Jeff Johnstonbaugh. "We thank the model train stores for generously donating these electric trains that we will give away."

Children accompanied by an adult can register to win the model trains. Drawings will be held at each mall at 3 p.m.
