Busch Gmbh Christmas Tree

I managed to get the Busch Gmbh n-scale Christmas Tree working for Christmas! Thanks to Chuck over at FEATHER RIVER TRAINS for helping out with the process!
The tree itself has a nice look to it overall. The lights run up one side primarily - something to take into account if you're thinking about picking this up. It has a beauty side to it that you'll want to have outward facing.
All in all, I'm very happy with this. I think it will live inside a building lobby next year.

Briddon: Industrial Area

My KATO UNITRAM set is branching out in a few spots. I have the City buildings at work and a small, industrial area set up on a shelf in the bedroom. I like having three distinct areas. Now I'm starting to focus on detail work, people and weathering to make the areas come alive a bit more. This works well because I can still work on my train items (when time allows) without over-running the house! :)

BRIDDON: Industrial Area More shots here:


I love my KATO Unitram set. It's fantastic for San Francisco n-scale running. Small and compact, the set allowed me to put something up and run in very little time. I was also able to set it up on a dresser in our room - ideal for the small apartment we live in.
I've changed the name on the little setup several times for photo shoots. Now - since moving the larger, City type buildings out to my work space at work - it's named BRIDDON. It's a small, sleepy historical section of some city somewhere with a small town feel.
