The Christmas Tree Who Loved Trains by Annie SilvestroA poignant Christmas tale about a tree who loved trains, and a little boy who loved them, too.
A pine tree grew in the farthest corner of the tree farm on a small patch of land that bordered the train track. The tree loved trains. She loved to watch them ZOOM by on the tracks beside the tree farm. Her branches would ripple in the wind as the trains roared past.
But one morning, when a little boy picks her to be his Christmas tree, she is uprooted and brought to a home far from the ZOOMING trains she loves…
Beautiful art from Paola Zakimi brings to life this lovely Christmastime tale from Annie Silvestro, perfect for readers who love The Giving Tree and The Velveteen Rabbit.
10 Best Christmas Train Sets: Your Buyer’s Guide (2019)
Looking back now over Christmases in my childhood, railroad trains were as integral a part and essential to the holiday itself as Santa Claus, Snickerdoodles, and Christmas trees. Every year my family would devote one December Saturday for an annual pilgrimage to downtown St. The annual Train Window Displays certainly counted as a special occasion. Every year, Santa Claus would arrive at the Kirkwood Railroad Station on a train pulled by a huff-chuffing steam locomotive, complete with whistles and bells. Santa would be greeted by applause and cheers by the crowd, step out of the train, wave, and then come inside the station for each of us to take our turns sitting on his lap for a photo while confiding our seasonal wish list. Memories like that tend not to fade over the years.
Every year, hundreds of model trains come up from the basement or down from the attic to become part of an annual holiday train display. How can you get the most out of your model trains when you only see them once a year? Here are 10 tips to keep your holidays happy. After a year in storage, your trains could probably benefit from a little cleaning. In addition to brushing off the dust, track and wheels need to be thoroughly cleaned. An older steel track is prone to rust if stored in humid locations. If your track shows signs of rust, save your time and replace it—clean wheels with paper towels and cleaning fluids.
