Guess again if you think the Long Island Rail Road is the only train that stops in Long Beach, because this Sunday, the "Chattanooga Choo Choo" chugs into town.

The Manhattan Dolls, a singing group specializing in tunes from the Great American Songbook, will perform hits made popular in the 1930s and '40s. The songs cover an era that featured big-band hits like Glenn Miller's "In the Mood" and "Chattanooga Choo Choo," the Andrews Sisters' "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" and slow-dancing numbers like Les Brown's "Sentimental Journey," a song that made Doris Day a star in 1945.

The show begins at 2 p.m. at Long Beach Library, and admission is free. For more information, call 516-432-7200.
