The Holiday Train Show is up and chugging along the miniature tracks at Jennings Hall in Williamsburg.

Hosted by St. Nick’s Alliance, the show will go on for about another week and St. Nick’s is encouraging neighborhood residents to have a look while sipping on some hot chocolate.

“We set it up two years ago and we’re trying to develop it a little more so that it’s even more permanent next year,” said Michael Rochford, executive director of St. Nick’s Alliance.

Three-year-old Oscar Orengo couldn’t wait to see the Train Show. His love of trains led his grandmother, Anna Ramos, to take him to see the show the same day it opened.

“He’s crazy about trains, so I had to bring him to see this,” said Ramos, who lives in Williamsburg.

Jennings Hall, 260 Powers Street, is a project of St. Nick’s Alliance. It is a 150-unit senior housing development with two wings – each with 75 units.

The hall is home to roughly 170 seniors, and 40 apartments are set aside for assisted living.
