    I'm from California (family has been here since before the American invasion (but that's probably too much information)) and I say if he or she wants to marry Christmas more power to her or him. Love trumps hate!

    Wow you read my mind mcguirel. Several years ago you suggested that I might do that and last night I was considering contacting you to see if you would still be willing to allow me to do so. I am in the process of replacing all the billboard trees and evaluating what other assets might be desirable to replace (snowy buildings etc).

    Other than verifying the signaling I'm pretty happy with the trackage. I used your <kuid2:72938:38000:1> Gargraves 3 Rail O-guage Track because that's the track my Dad used for all his layouts of my youth.

    We'll see how it goes there may be a TANE Winter Wonderland by Christmas.

    Note; this will use only DLS assets. Finding good snowy dead trees is proving to be a challenge.

    I (think) I may have saw that route on the DLS but I can't remember it's name or at least one that looked very similar to it.

    Correct it is on the DLS: Merry Christmas,<kuid:69768:99960257> by hooverman build 2.4. I've made some changes but not many, primarily the very large tree on top. I've fiddled with it every season since 2011.

    wiley4's Santa's Christmas Special from around 2004 passes s301's newest 2017 Christmas Train.

    Each year at Christmas I'm reminded of bnsf50's (Linda and Clem) contributions to our community, especially their holiday rolling stock collection. Back in 2011 I more or less instigated them into re-dating some of their rail cars from the original 2006 to 2011 and I've kinda regretted that ever since so...



    With Linda's kind permission I've recovered the original 2006 cars, updated them to build 3.5, and enhanced the original art work to the best of my abilities.

    <kuid:633834:160103> Snowy Season's Greetings 2006
    <kuid:633834:160102> 50ft Mrs Santa Bear Box Car 2006
    <kuid:633834:160101> 50ft M & M Christmas Train Boxcar 2006
    <kuid:633834:160100> 40ft Forest Animals Christmas Boxcar 2006

    Clem moved on to that great rail yard in the sky a couple of years ago so these are dedicated to his memory. They are on the DLS.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
