Philadelphia (CBS) – It’s a family tradition in Philadelphia where for the eight year model train enthusiasts of all ages make a stop at the Reading Terminal Market’s holiday train display.
There are interactive buttons on the 500 square foot display. People can move the figures, illuminate lights and make things like amusement rides move as 17 working train lines make travel on nearly a third of a mile of track through miniature scenery including Center City Philadelphia, a Christmas village and snow-covered countryside.READ MORE: 'THIS IS HOME': Watch Zach Ertz's Emotional Goodbye To Philadelphia After Being Traded To Cardinals

The railroad will be on display in the piano court inside the Reading Terminal Market located at 12th and Arch Streets.MORE NEWS: Eagles Trade TE Zach Ertz To Arizona Cardinals For CB Tay Gowan, 2022 5th-Round Pick
