    Well, I might have outdone all of you. No cars, no locos, no accessories or kits, but I did get a brand new train room!!!! Santa says he can't deliver it until around the end of March when our new house if ready, but I know it's worth waiting for.:thumb: :thumb:

    Besides my usual box of chocolate candy and the normal unrailroady things. My kids got me a C&O Allegheny 2-6-6-6.I did not know what to say or if I should cry! :eek: That was the very last thing I expected although my little "spy"(read 9 year old Grand Daughter) did mention it once in a burst of Grand-paw I know what you are getting for Christmas and let it slip but still I was not really expecting such a high dollar locomotive..Thankfully my kids was wise enough to buy at discount through one of the internet shops.:thumb: :D
    Of course I just had to test run this puppy on my yard layout and it runs as smooth as it looks..I can't wait to take this puppy to the club and run her across the layout.:thumb: :D
    Boy do I forver more love my kids!

    The ultimate kit-bashing tool: a table saw :D :D :D

    It sure is nice to have one that cuts well. And the old one can just stay setup for cutting stripwood now :D :D :D

    Also a compound miter saw, which will do nicely cutting framing for benchwork. Electric brake; weird, the blade just stops. Cut the pencil mark in half first time I used it :D :D :D

    Let's see...

    an MT stock car
    an Atlas 8-40BW, red & silver warbonnet sporting "Santa Fe"
    some MT couplers

    and that's about it! I've got some stuff on order that hasn't shown up yet...does that count? :D

    Got my son a Atlas SP U25B (they have one of these up at a rail museum near here and he absolutely loves that locomotive for some reason). Also got my wife the same loco, but in bicentennial colors. She remembers seeing that engine as a child while living in Orange County, CA. (interesting side note: The Atlas locomotive is numbered 6800, which is the same one that my youngest is infatuated with... Here's a link: http://www.oerm.org/pages/sp3100.html :thumb:

    And, just cuz I feel like it, here's a picture taken last January:
