August 31, 2007

   The Solar Express is chugging its way to the South Florida Science Museum.

   Energy conservation and Florida history are the themes of the outdoor, interactive science trail's new permanent exhibit.

   You can push buttons and move two model trains around a G-scale town. There also will be other mobile displays, including a carousel within the town that will need to be activated.

   The Solar Express layout contains a 1950s model cattle/freight train and a passenger train.

   The model town and trains set up contains more than 500 pieces, including model houses, windmill, farm and other items.

   One child will be selected to receive a model train set, a conductor's hat and be the first to push the button and start the train.

When: Saturday, 9/1/07. Exhibit opening kicks off at 11 a.m.

Where: South Florida Science Museum, 4801 Dreher Trail N., West Palm Beach.

   The Solar Express was designed, donated & installed by Rick Newman,
