There was a steady stream of visitors to the Oyster Bay Railroad Museum on Audrey Avenue the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 8 and 9. Santa was there on Saturday, ready to be photographed by happy parents. Outside two white horses pulled a garlanded wooden wagon that carried about a dozen passengers each trip around the historic hamlet.
Numbers were given out to each group and at about 3:30 p.m. they were up to number 65. Each group had from two to six members so there was a goodly number of people who enjoyed the free ride around the historic hamlet.
This family-friendly celebration featured operating model railroads, hot cider, candy canes, cookies and raffle prizes. People traveled from across Loing Island to visit the museum. An added perk for visitors was the Billy Joel 21st Century Classics motorcycle exhibit across the street from the railroad museum.
