The Polar Express – Christmas Comes to Lionel Town

Here’s an effort to use the layout as a movie set, featuring the Polar Express train set by Lionel, with all the add-on cars, the elf hand car, and some animated scenes by Lamaze. Editing by Pinnacle Studio 11. Ride of the Valkyries by Richard Wagner. Keep the volume up to get the full effect of “the surprise”. Hope you enjoy.
