What Train is Running Around Your Tree This Year?

We’re working with distributors and a couple of our local shops to bring you a Christmas Tree special episode.

Here’s a sampling of what we’re showing in episode 29 and a few tips on how to get yours. We’ll be showing G, O, HO, N and Z Gauge holiday trains. The T-scale is just in the photo for comparison!

These sets or others like them should be available at your local hobby shop or you can go through an online retailer.

The sets you see here and in the episode are shown courtesy of Horizon Hobby Trains and two of our our local retailers, Eastridge Hobbies in Calgary, Alberta and Ultimate Trains in Nanton, Alberta.

These are scale trains, but there are lots of cheap plastic trains that you can setup once a year and run around your tree. They are usually fairly inexpensive, battery powered and the best thing Railroad modelers have to say about them is… “It’s OK of the dog chews that one up”. We’re not covering those, but according to http://Christmas-Train.com, they are all sold out and very hard to find now anyway.

Hope you enjoy the episode!

– Neil.
