    Ok guys lets spill the beans on how NICE or NAUGHTY we were this year by telling what we got for XMAS.

    Myself, I got a neat looking video game called "Sid Meir's Railroads" as well as a few pieces of rolling stock and finally an Atlas DCC locomotive.

    We had Christmas on Christmas Eve this year, I am at work pulling Fire Watch. My son is only 11 weeks old, so he won't know, but next year somebody else gets this duty.:)
    Anyhow, my wife heard my intrest in modeling a Steel Mill, so I had a very HO Steel Mill X-Mas. Rolling Mill, Power House, Ore Bridge, everything I got is steel related... Plus a DCC starter set and an Airbrush:)
    My wife Rules!!!!!!!

    Have a Merry Christmas all...

    well seeing how im orthodox i dont get stuff until new year. but i wont be getting anything train related, atleast i highly doubt it, my parents only started finding out about my interest for these things a couple of days ago. but i am getting a longboard. wish this train stuff wasnt so expensive and maybe id have a better chance of getting some

    Nothing on Christmas day; everything I got so far was in advance. :D

    My parents got me plane tickets and spending money for my trip. "Kitsune" from here on The Gauge got me Amtrak tickets from Ohio to Portland and from Portland to Seattle. "RidgeRunner" hasn't shipped my present yet, although I know it came from the Little Choo Choo Shop in Spencer. :thumb: Another friend we'll simply call "Furball" got me the first season of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex on DVD. :thumb: There are a few more outstanding packages I'm expecting but I'm sure they'll show up while I'm out of town.

    Merry Christmas to everyone else on The Gauge!

    Would you believe that I didn't get anything train related this year. I guess the hints I dropped fell upon deaf ears. . . . .

    Chris - take yourself as soon as possible to TLCCS in Spencer and buy yourself something great - and if anyone family member asks why, let them know that this forum told you that you must.

    (Hey, 8 out of 10 voices in my head tell me to buy train stuff all the time) :thumb:
