Christmas Tree Train

Our Christmas tree needed a train.

I had some old HO scale track laying around, so I decided to put it to good use.

Built a 3ft ring out of wood and glued polystyrene foam insulation to it, creating the base.
Used a coat hanger attached to a soldering gun to carve the foam.
Refined the shape of the mountains with a knife.
Glued mountains to base.
Had some help painting base with primer.
Time to add some glitter.
Attached track to ring.
Testing the track.

Installed under the tree, just in time for Santa!

Merry Christmas!
