Preston Hollow residents Vera Bangs and Vicky Riley will serve as co-chairs and Carol and Sam Dalton and their children will serve as honoroary chairs of this year’s Trains at NorthPark committee, the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas announced Wednesday.

The duo is already hard at work preparing for the event, which will run from November 21 through January 3.

The holiday tradition, now in its 22nd year, features more than 40 Lionel-type O-Gauge and the larger G-Gauge locomotives winding across 2,500 feet of track through a variety of miniature versions of famous landmarks, including Mount Rushmore, Dallas’ skyline, New York City’s Times Square and locations across Washington, D.C.

The event is the largest fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas, and last year, more than 83,000 people attended the event.

The event relies on the support of numerous volunteers. For more information, call Courtney McLain at 214-631-7354.
