    I bet that was a blast! That little guy looks pretty excited and you've started a new tradition to boot!

    SWEET!

    Looks like some kids had an excellent Christmas this year. :thumb:

    Yep, building a layout is pretty much a learn-as-you-go process-- Half of the fun is learning or discovering how to do the scenary! Looks like you got the basics mastered pretty well. No doubt this is the beginning of an empire. :cool:

    That just looks like a blast,nice and simple and not real expensive!I'm not doing anything much more complcated then that,just spending alot of money doing it!

    The looks on the kids faces are definantly worth it,eh?

    Lots of "creative" license taken. Trees came from an old christmas tree, popsicle stick bridge, wal-mart houses, and hand-made stuff.

    Depends on what you mean by "fun"? The company was great, well until we discovered that Christmas Eve is not the best time to move an eight foot long table top--would have been okay had it not rained. Setting up lasted only until about 3am, then it was a quick trip home and wrapping my own kids presents until 559am in bed by 6am then back up by 830am thank God my kids are teens. Actually it was so great I asked Santa for a train of my own, only "N" scale. This is such a cooool hobby, my husband even enjoys it.
    "edit" Oh yeah the kids had fun--just look at his face it was worth all the loooong nights. He talked about it all day Christmas. And Santa gave me my train!!!

    Oh man, got a call last night, found JT sleeping under his train table where he had played himself out--he hasn't left the trains except to eat and sleep in two days.
