American Flyer Christmas train

The 2017 display of holiday fun
RELATED TOPICS: AMERICAN FLYER S GAUGE
Name: Michael Marmer
Railroad Name: American Flyer Railroad
Location: Germantown, Maryland
Scale: S
Theme: Christmas Train Under Tree
Description: The awaited 2017 American Flyer Christmas Train has arrived. Its back under the 35 year old artificial Mountain King tree. It passes by Christmas Tree Village number two, as there seems to be no sign of life, except for the giant snow people. Complete with Bruster the blinking Raindeer in the covered hopper, the blinking Christmas tree in the box car, and the always lovable Cat Nip Rat with catnip all over him, circa, 1984. And special guest, Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus, on the back of the red caboose. Matches, their outfit. And the shining star of the video, no not just any star from the sky, but Testudo above the scene. (Maryland Terrapin suspended in air, with a hook to a lower branch of the tree). Engine circa 1958 from Childhood. I freshen up the smoke fluid during filming, as the smoke will be stronger in the later collage, powered by Anormal Smoke Fluid of Medford, Oregon.
