CHRISTMAS IS HERE: Christmas Train From Brad’s Childhood Runs Again!
Christmas is here again and Brad’s childhood Christmas train is rolling again, with a little help from Walt at Walt’s Train Shop on Pitts Street. Another change for us this year – We had to elevate our tree to protect it from that new, fuzzy puppy that thinks everything is edible.
Brad built a a large box with framing strong enough to put the trains and the tree on. He spent close to an hour at Walt’s getting help fixing the engine which was missing some important wheels. Then he picked up the supplies he needed to clean the trains up so that they would run properly. He spent hours working on them. Success!
We even have the homemade tunnel that Brad’s Mom made out of an old oatmeal box.
And I got an early Christmas present at Walt’s, a trolley!
Now I can spend the next year building myself a Christmas village to go with the train! Ah, my dreams of being an architect have a future yet.
Merry Christmas everyone!!
