Christmas Train: CSX Locomotive
The holiday train consist is powered by a Bachmann model of a CSX EMD SD40-2 diesel locomotive. This popular and powerful locomotive makes a good choice for decoration due to its large front and rear “porches” and wide walkways on both sides with sturdy railings. The railings are festooned with a garland of cut-to-fit wrapping ribbon, green on one side, gold on the other. Each side of the train also features a gold ribbon decoration. The roof of the locomotive features “dollhouse” garland and Christmas lights. A decorated Preiser Christmas tree sits atop the cab. A Hallmark mini wreath rides up front with a Hallmark mini reindeer on the front porch. Santa (a 1970s era plastic mini) rides the rear porch.
