    Even tho I have a small apartment. I do have larger trains on display. Last Christmas, I had my G scale train running around the tree. Here's that same train on display above my kicten cabinets.

    Really neat there!:thumb:

    One of my buddies had a N scale train running around his Christmas tree. The board had a hole in the middle for the tree stand and the train ran through a Christmas village and a tunnel through a mountain. I did the wiring for his buildings and street lights and the most challenging part was wiring the Christmas lights into a N scale tree for his Post Office.

    Unfortunately, the set is under repair (mountain got crushed:cry: ), but he's got new ideas for the set.

    Great stuff:thumb: Us apartment dwellers can still enjoy the hobby---even with a full house.

    My setup...an N scale layout with displays for most all my HO equipment.

    Hard to be a G Scale going around the Xmas tree. I just wish I had the space or backyard to keep a G scale layout up all the time.
