    Hi:
    Y'all have fun. Since you've already got the train, might as well ask Santa for a few last minute "accessories".

    Regards,
    Ted

    Hi Jeff,
    Congratulations on your purchase. I know your family will enjoy it. I would suggest you test out the engine and sounds before doing it with the kids. Todays electronics can sometimes be finicky so test it before the kids are around so they won't be disappointed if there is a problem. When you get started on the layout ask questions and we all will help. I know of ways to make strong, lightweight mountains in very little time and they look very realistic. I have built quite a few layouts and offer my experience and advice. Have a great Holiday, Steve
