An LGB 65001 sound module was installed in the tender connected to power from the loco and all the passenger cars are wired for track powered (1 axel) interior lights. The LGB Christmas bobber caboose is also wired for track powered (2 axels) interior lights and exterior marker lights

Last year I used the LGB Reverse Loop solution for our Christmas layout as I was unsuccessful in getting the Magic Motorman to work, http://realroad.com/. The LGB Reverse Loop solution works fine and is extremely easy to wire up (SEE LGB Christmas Passenger Starter Set #70325. Santa Claus train 2004 above). However I didn't like the way it slows down in each loop. I decided to attempt getting the Magic Motorman running this year and was successful (more or less).

My first experience with radio control. RCS converted Bachmann Climax added to the Redmond Creek RR. Conversion done by Dave Goodson
I finally got some of my new figures situated in my Shay. I hated to do it but it required some leg surgery on both the engineer and the fireman. A little museum clear gel and they are pretty much not going anywhere.

This video was taken at night with only the lights of the train, tree and buildings.
Here is a video of the daytime version.
