    I know this isn't true scale modeling...it's just playing with trains but I thought I'd share it here. Got a deal on some easy track so thought I'd throw it around the tree and add some of my smaller tree ornaments.

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE

    While you lay on the floor, looking at the lights and listen for the train to come around so you can grab a chocolate filled peppermint stick

    The Fimo Santa is something we made many years ago, a psuedo modeling endeavor, he fits pretty good in that tin sleigh ornament.

    Why does a wind up train need a third rail?!?!??!

    Great flat car load. You need a cattle car for the "livestock".

    I'll use that one at the next club get together! Tho' vasn't Zanta Klaus Churman, Sveedish or Finnish originally? Might have to call it a Finnish Flyer. (Say it six times quickly like Sylvester the cat)
