Norcross Weekend Planner: Trains, Phones and More

Get ready for the weekend, Patch readers.

Get ready for the weekend, Patch readers. It's almost here, and Norcross has a few events lined up for it. 

To start us off, the Golden Spike Train Show will be at the North Atlanta Trade Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 12. With admission at $7 and no cost for kids under 12, the show will feature a variety of railroadiana for sale, model trains for sale, artifacts and lots of collectors. Check out the website for more details.

From 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Sunday, the city of Norcross is having an opening on the welcome center's latest exhibit on Ravensbruck, the most notorious women's concentration camp where 140,000 women were sent to during the Holocaust. Held in Norcross Cultural Arts and Community Center, the opening will have the display on hand and author Martha Kelly will speak about her book on Ravensbruck.

Starting at the same time, nearby Heritage Park will have a ribbon cutting ceremony to debut the installation of the garden sculpture, "TalkTalkTalk." Centering around the world of communication, the outdoor art is a collection of 15 sculptures inspired and made from AT&T phones salvaged from an home old on Cemetery Street. The event is from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
