Utica, NY (WIBX) - The trains are now running at the Children's Museum of History, Science and Technology in Utica.  An overhead train exhibit, complete with official ribbon cutting, opened today.

The idea for the exhibit was sparked by the first of what became many donations.  When Marlene Brown, Executive Director of the Museum, received a letter from the attorney of a man who left a train set to the museum posthumously, she knew she was onto something.  The opening of the new exhibit was attended by dozens of children and their parents.

The prized and growing collection now graces the fourth floor of the museum.  For more information call the Children's Museum at (315) 724.6129 or visit their website at: www.museum4kids.net.
