Thanks all! This is the 5th year for a the train display. 2015 one of my son's had a tendon repair surgery and was wheelchair bound during summer. I needed something to occupy his brain, and the idea was born. We are a family who love trains! Every year we make vacation plans that include train rides. The first display was the 'Ghost Train' I built the framework out of 2x4s in several sections that screw together and are covered in several different types of material. I posted a collage of the five trains over the years. Last year's train has a winch structure so the reaper raises and lowers with a remote. The wheels moving are ceiling fans that are mounted sideways and operated remotely as well. Enjoy!
