    My new grandson is going to be out-of-state Christmas day, so we celebrated with him last night. Here's a picture of him with his first railroad model.

    Yessir, that's a good start! I recall a thread a while ago that talked about how the classic image of a train, even for younger people who have never seen one, is a steam locomotive. Another case in point! It looks like he's thoroughly enjoying it! Nice call Grandpa!
