Glædelig jul / Joyeux Noël / Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from Quinntopia!  
Warmest wishes for this holiday to all my friends, readers, and their families!

The above photo is my relatively new Kato DSB Nohab on a diorama I quickly built using foamcore, flour, trees plucked from the layout, and some leftover Kato track.  Unlike last year's Christmas photo, I decided to try and brave the outdoors for this mini-diorama rather than attempting to build a fake backdrop, and I have to say, the result is a way more cool!  Of course, I had to wait for a break in the rain to get this done, fortunately, we seem to have gotten a rain reprieve today!

Below is another shot - have to include a passenger train!- of an SNCF Fret locomotive pulling a few Corail coaches.

With that...all I can say is Merry Christmas and I hope that you are blessed with many toys this holiday and that you have an awesome year!
