Town Board Recognizes Hicksville Resident For Charity Model Train Show

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and his colleagues on the Town Board recognized Joel Berse, of Trainville Hobby Depot in Hicksville, for his community contributions in coordinating several model train shows every year which support worthwhile causes. This year, the beneficiary was the Oyster Bay Rail Road Museum, whose mission is to heighten awareness, understanding and appreciation of the railroad’s impact on Long Island life.

“We are fortunate to have members of our community like Joel who extend themselves as volunteers and take action that add greatly to our community,” said Supervisor Saladino.

Due to the support and generosity of Joel and Trainville Hobby Depot, which raised in excess of $3,000, the Museum is able to collect, preserve and interpret the railroad heritage of Long Island for present and future generations.
