    Lightbulb outdoor Christmas train platform build

    going to take you on another ride. LOL
    this build will take most of the summer to complete.
    the display prop
    the thought is a 12 x 5 platform that is 2 1/2 levels tall with a 5 foot tree on top of that,
    thinking 3 tracks with 2 towns and working ski lift,
    this will be done in g scale ran by wireless remote,
    snow covered theme and i hope weatherproof ........
    all this will be built on a cart to make moving and setup a snap..
    video to come once i start the project, (soon) like i said a ride from the ground up. starting with the trailer assemble clean to the tree on top.
    below is a ruff paint sketch of the idea...

    Cool, Butch! Can't wait to see your build!
    Even though the DIGWDF Store has closed, it's still awesome! Thanks to all who have supported us through nearly 7 years of excitement!
    Parts of the store will remain open for downloading documentation, firmware and Gerber/DipTrace files: http://digwdf.com/store
