Larry Shughart's Christmas Display (Northern Florida)

My Christmas Layout is different each year, although some of the village people and accessories have been included in my Christmas display since I was a child, particularly the ice skating scene and the lead figures. This year's display is an homage to a vintage Christmas display from around 1950. The feature piece is a German Bing Metal Station that was made for OO scale, but fits S gauge quite nicely. The country area includes two Schoenhut wooden houses along with a Marx Lithograph barn. The Church is a Japanese Putz style glitter house. The City area is squeezed under the Christmas tree and is comprised of two Department 56 buildings and a dozen or so Japanese Putz houses. The train is an original American Flyer 302AC steam locomotive with link coupler freight cars. The track is traditional Gilbert track with extra wooden ties inserted. The board is a 4' x 8' with the back corners cut off so I could slide it into the window opening to give me four more inches of space in the living room. I raised the table a bit off the floor to rest on the window sill, and making a space under the table for the creche to simulate a cave.
