Where Did We Get Those Trains?

Children of all ages stop by the glass cases and stare at the wooden model steam locomotives on display at the Library. Meticulously reproduced by Mr. Grover LeCates, the locomotives are made from scraps of white pine and spruce, hand-carved using small tools, files, and sandpaper to reproduce every single component, from the broiler casing to the tiny mechanism that move the great wheels. Even the tiny rivets, smaller than a pinhead, are wood. Mr. LeCates grew up in Delmar watching the pageant of steam as it played out its last days.
