    On the east coast a train layout under the Christmas tree is called a Train Garden or if you are in the Baltimore/Pennsylvania area it is sometimes called a Train Putz.

    How many other TW members have a train under the Christmas tree? Any scale is welcome so show them off. I would also be interested if your family had a train under the tree when you were younger.

    Personally I love Standard Gauge under the tree and to me really identifies the toy train with Christmas. When I was growing up in the 50's Christmas was about the Lionel layout under the tree on Christmas morning. The smoke billowing out of the smoke stack and the tinplate sound of the train going around on the layout.

    This year is the first year we have set up the Christmas village and expanded the Garden into a figure 8 layout with one loop for the tree and the other loop for the North Pole Village.
