Something for your Christmas layouts

Postby End2end » Mon Nov 13, 2017 11:09 am

I know some modellers make a Christmas layout round the tree or wherever and I found this.

Christmas themed gander dancer. No couplings but if one could be fashioned you could perhaps pull the Hornby Christmas wagons that are loaded with presents.

Only OO?
On the floor?

Mine is a big one!

I have one similar to this, https://www.coolstuff.com/Christmas-Tree-Train except mine has smoke as well! Not been up for 6 years as the kids have growd up, reminds me to dig it out and pass it on to my kids, so the grand kids can incessantly switch it on and annoy their parents! :D (hit the video link, crank the volume up and you will get what I mean!)

It reminds me of one year when Cumbernauld MRG exhibited our layout "Exchange Square" at Aberdeen Exhibition, the organisers told us that we were in the lead in the visitors vote for best layout, then the O gauge dogtrack next to us started running one of those and scooped the prize

I have a non Christmas version with ordinary men on it. Have prices gone up, or does the Christmas version just cost a tad more?
