   Shown is Anthony DeRosa of Stony Brook whose winning ticket was drawn on Sunday, August 25th for the LIGRS Train Set Raffle. Tickets were sold at RailFest at the Railroad Museum of Long Island, Riverhead.

   Modular displays, the museum ground display and train set raffle are some of the ways that the LIGRS is reaching out to publicly introduce large scale railroading in the garden.

  Anthony selected the PIKO starter set, seen here as awarded by president Mike Kmeth.
