Welcome to the December 2004 Model Photography Gallery! The theme for this month is a very traditional model railroad theme for the holiday season: Model Railroading is Fun!

As always, how you interpret the theme is up to you. So let's see your photos of model railroading fun.

To All,

I guess that I will be the first to post. I decided to get an On30 Bachmann Christmas set for around the tree. Since my layout is no where to be seen, I at least have some place to run some equipment!!!

That's the Christmas Spirit , Frank ! I think if I did the same , my Pugs would chase the train round and round the tree . Of course , that might be a VERY good reason for me to set one up !

Frank, Nice picture! I had to look hard for a train ornament on the tree, but there is at least one!

Tom, Looks like they are having fun!

Well Frank, I can see a couple of what appear to be train ornaments on that tree. The stork carring the baby would scare me though! Also, is the ladder in the back to make it easier for the cat to scale the tree?

So Tom, how big is your son's layout this year?

In December 2000, both my father and I visited Northlandz (a huge HO train layout here in NJ) and it got us both back into the hobby. In each year since then, my father has built a "project layout" during the year. This picture shows parts of all four.

Since the grandkids were going to be home for Thanksgiving instead of Christmas this year, my father made sure that all trains were running that weekend.



That is my father in the far background (now 84), my son Craig, my grandkids Tyler and Devon (the older boy and the girl), and two grandnephews, John & Christopher.

The layout on the right was the first (2001), with three continuous HO loops on two levels. In the far left was the 2002 project, one long continuous N-scale loop (winter scene). The layout in the lower left was the 2003 project. It is HO, and has two separate loops. This year's project was the HO shelf layout. It has three tracks with auto-reverse circuits on them. All told, there were 9 trains running for the kids.

Here is a better picture of my father.



What does he have planned for 2005? Why a shelf layout on the right-hand side of the room, of course!
