“The display is split between two hills divided by two eight foot bridges. In the valleys are plants and a pond from Corso’s,” explained Ralph Boyer.
Boyer is a member of the Northern Ohio Railroad Society and has enjoyed trains since childhood. Boyer and around twenty other members and employees at Coroso’s set up this year’s train exhibit at Corso’s Flower and Garden Center.
“As you come upon it [the display] you will see a trolley running back and forth and a bunch of log cabins” said Boyer. Then across the pond is a larger Christmas tree with a separate track running around it.
A button will be able to be pressed by spectators to make the trains go around the track.
There is also a mini greenhouse display with tiny poinsettias inside in the display. “We call it the Corso’s greenhouse,” said Boyer.
A group of eighty members strong, the Northern Ohio Garden Railroad Society travels far and wide to plant smiles on people’s faces.
Other displays have been set up at Crocker Park, the IMAX Theatre in Cleveland, Maumee and plenty others, including a holiday special at the Akron Zoo this year.
“We are just a group of die-hard railroaders,” said Boyer. “We just have fun doing it and seeing the joy on the faces of children and adults makes it event more enjoyable.”
The train display will be set up at Corso’s now until the first of January.
