    Susan got me a DVD of CSX's River Line in NY...the former NYC and PC River Division that includes scenes of my home town! Even though the trains are different now I see some very familiar places along the rails from my childhood!

    sign1 Christmas and Birthdays are allways pretty big for me and my sister. My mom spent almost $700.00 on my sister for Christmas :eek: and she gets whatever she wants throughout the year. (the younger child is always spoiled lol) I only get cloths when it isn't christmas or my b-day, and there is nothing wrong with that and I am grateful for that. So when those 2 holidays roll around, I get lots of stuff. :D :D :D

    Lets see. Christmas didn't bring as much train stuff as I thought. Although no one can confirm or deny my pre order for the Tower 55 UP/MP Heritage unit! :D
    I got 2 gift certificates to my LHS, a new storage container that has proved very very usefull for my couplers and detail parts! Also got a HO model UP BigBoy. :)

    Santa was rather generous with the iPod stuff though. I don't think there is an iPod accessory that I DIDN'T get today! Plus a new Nano. :thumb:

    Nothing train related. My model railroading is narrowly focused on steam and logging so everybody is afraid to buy train stuff.

    I generally don't encourage train gifts from anyone---kinda hard to work one of those snow capped Styrofoam tunnels into the landscape. My kids can get me anything though and I'll work it in no matter how bizarre, my beloved will make sure it's to scale. This year my little girl just had to get me some carz from Wally World...6 in all. Just tryin' to figger out how to work that RED Lamborghini and that PURPLE Firebird into circa 1976 Sussex County, Delaware.

    Speaking of Campbells, I'm in the process of putting together a Double Track Truss Bridge right now. Those are some serious time consuming kits.:D
