The somewhat restrained atmosphere didn’t mask the great emotion that charged the air on Thursday of last week at the First Station.

At a site where a fabulous collection of model railways is exhibited, display director Shimon Futterman handed David Gross, an 84-year-old Holocaust survivor surrounded by family, staff and friends, two very large boxes containing a complete set of state-of-theart computerized model railways, courtesy of the German company that builds them.
