Step 1: Pick A Spot & A Theme
For our holiday display we choose to do a typical Christmas Village with a Trolley going through it .
For The Trolley, I used an O-gauge Christmas Trolley Set from MTH Trains. This is my first O-Gauge set, and you can read more about it at TheHobbyGuy.
Our holiday display is in the bow window in our living room. If you don't have a bay or bow window, you can do this on a shelf, a mantle, or a table.
I set the Trolley up first to make sure it would fit, and because I just wanted to play. The set included a circle of track, however, I laid out the track in a serpentine. This will make the trolley wind through the display and give visual interest from different angles.
