Back by popular demand, the National Capital Trackers ( will be exhibiting their festive, magical and truly awe-inspiring Christmas landscape at the Annual Winter Wonderland Train Show in Manassas.

Admission is free to the community, but everyone is encouraged to bring donations of either a canned good or a new unwrapped toy for Northern Virginia Family Services’ SERVE shelter.

Evoking the holiday winter wonderland of the past, this landscape comprises mountains, bridges, rivers, cities, towns and villages, with various locomotives and cars in "o" gauge.  The landscape includes snow and sounds of a railroad community.

The popular holiday train show has been attracting people of all ages to Manassas for more than six years.

"I like to see other people’s work and how they build their miniature worlds," says Curtis Brookshire, a City of Manassas resident and fellow model railroader.  Brookshire is also a Norfolk Southern official and participates in VRE's Operation Lifesaver Santa Train.  "Besides, it’s fun to watch little trains go around."
