Lexington - The National Heritage Museum launches February School Vacation Week with a weekend filled with model railroading fun.

The Northeast Ntrak Modular Railroad Club will be at the Museum Saturday, Feb. 16, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 17 from noon to 5 p.m.

The Ntrack trains are smaller in size than traditional model trains, but are just as much fun. The layouts combine beautifully detailed modules with long trains running on the two main lines. In addition to the train weekend, the museum is presenting a host of other programming ranging from demonstrations to children’s workshops. Call 781-861-6559 for more information, or visit www.nationalheritagemuseum.org.
