One of the most iconic scenes ever depicted for the holidays is the one where Christmas train sets run along tracks at the foot of the Christmas tree. Children just love these moving decorations, and for those who truly love trains, it also means a present that they will play with for years to come.
The tradition requires collecting them throughout the year, and then setting up the Christmas trainsets on Christmas Eve. Then, when the kids come down early in the morning, they find it very easy to believe that Santa left it behind as a special treat just for them.
Choosing the set will depend on the age of the kids. Younger kids like the solid sets sold in toy stores, while older kids might enjoy the more detailed sets available from hobby outlets. The scale will vary, with O being the largest, and HO the smallest.
