That is really a fantastic layout (and video)! It makes me really miss my Christmas Village that I have not reassembled for the last 2 years. Mine was not in your league. There were no hand made features other than landscape. The buildings were all Snow Village and the vehicles and other details were all store bought "O" gauge compatible.

This is the second of my 3 Christmas train layouts (Disneyland, Postwar and Prewar). The first 30 seconds of it feature a stop motion chase scene of a reproduction Lionel Wartime Freight Train, also known as the "Paper Train". It got that name because war production board restrictions prevented Lionel and other toy manufacturers from using steel during WWII, So Lionel turned to a cereal box and premiums manufacturer to have some of their prewar trains reproduced as heavy cardstock kits that kids could assemble and play with. Originals in unassembled condition are rare and pricey, so in the late 80's Greenberg Publishing reproduced the Paper Train so modern collectors could have a crack at building one. Other than the Paper Train there aren't any paper models in this video. But there is 5 minutes of postwar Lionel and American Flyer action with a bit of animation and other nonsense thrown in for good measure.

Oh, and the Doctor has a hair raising experience too! Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

Santy Claus brought me a new Sony Cybershot and I've been having fun learning how to use it!

First time I've had a lens that could get the whole layout without me having to go outside in the deep freeze and shoot through a window!











I can mess with the color saturation and get more artsy photos too:









My 4 year old second cousin was over on Saturday and he called this the "shark tooth tree". And here I thought it was Charlie Brown's kite-eating tree!





Night photos are better too:





For comparison, the photo above was taken with the new Sony DSC-H300 while the photo below was taken in November using my Fuji FinePix S5000:



The Fuji was certainly a good camera, but there's no denying that technology has come a long way since 2003.

Becky, these are the best pictures I've seen yet of Disneyland. Much better detail and appreciation of the labor of love that it is. Thanks so much to Santa and to you for posting the pics.

That new camera reallys shows how good your layout looks. Those are some real good overall and closeup photos.
