    This is a layout that I did for Christmas. I wanted the train to be on the way to the North Pole. Not leaving anyplace in particular and not arrived yet. I also wanted Santa to be visiting the animals in the mountains.

    Couple More Pics

    Sorry for the quality of the pics. They were taken with a 35 mm camera. If someone could tell me how to downsize them they may be clearer.

    Hop you folks enjoy them.

    One more pic

    I hope these will give you an idea of the layout. It was a three month project and finished just before Thanksgiving.

    It looks like a Bachmann Spectrum 2-8-0 :thumb: a very nice performer. It looks right at home on that layout. Nice work.

    David and Wyoming: it is indeed a Spectrum 2-8-0. I really like it. I would like to add a decoder to it to get the engine sounds.

    Thanks for the positive feedback guys. I usually make a different layout each year for Christmas. The past 3 or 4 years I have worked with 0-27 guage and Christmas villages.
    This is my first venture into N scale. It takes some getting used to, but I think its great! The back side of the layout, aginst the mirror, had a grade of 3 inches over the 3 foot length of the layout coming up the curve going into the trussel. The Spectrum handled it very nicely.
    In 18 months to 2 years we will be moving to Lexington, Ky [retiring] from Locust Grove, Ga. I hope to convince my wife to let me build a permanent layout at that time.

    I'm glad y'all enjoyed the layout.
