Effort To Replace Herman Park Train Gains Steam

Effort To Replace Herman Park Train Gains Steam

The effort to replace the historic Kiwanis Train in Herman Park is right on track. 

Chip Craig from the Goldsboro Kiwanis Club gave an update on the fundraising endeavor at the last Goldsboro City Council meeting.

He says they’re at around $30,000 of their $100,000 goal.

A purchase-a-brick program allows citizens to have a loved one’s name engraved on a brick which will be laid as part of the renovations at the miniature train station.

Craig says they’re still examining what to do with the old train once the new model is purchased. 

The Kiwanis Club plans to hold an event featuring an update on the new train this Thursday, November 4 at 4:30 PM at the miniature train station in Herman Park. 

The Kiwanis Club of Goldsboro has been operating the miniature train in Herman Park since 1955.
