Saturday Snapshot -- Holiday Trains

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post on Alyce's blog At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

Our downtown library, voted the best in the country, puts up a holiday train display. Kids just stand and stare, unable to move on from the display.



Here are some close-up details.




And from the top as we climbed the stairs, we saw a waterfall on display too.


Hope you all have a marvelous Christmas, if you celebrate, and a peaceful New Year.

Such a beautiful train display. You're lucky to have it. We saw a display at Christkindl at the City Hall one year. Lovely, just not as elaborate as the one you show.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Where do you live? I want to go and see this display. Do they do it every year? Thanks for sharing the photos of it.

What a nice display! And a great way to get kids into the library.

Thuis is all I would have dreamed of, as a child, and it is mesmerising, too, as an adult. A winter wonderland!
Thank you for posting this magical display.
