An old Chesapeake & Ohio locomotive makes its way around the track at Jim Schwieterman's home in Maria Stein this Christmas season. The engine, above, is one of five that chug along an extended track in his basement. Schwieterman, his brothers, and their father, Don, have a passion for model trains and take turns setting up the large display at their homes. Some of the pieces date back about 45 years.
Online story associated with this photograph
MARIA STEIN - Nothin' says Christmas like the whistle of a chugging locomotive as it circles a lit evergreen. It's those sights and sounds that Jim Schwieterman recalls from childhood when he and his brothers fought over a toy . . .
