Name of Layout Holidaysrock

This fictional representation is of a North American geographical location beginning on the south end with a metro-city, progressing thru the country, a great lake and on up thru Canada to the North Pole village. The set is laid out on two 4' by 8' sections in a loose "L" shape with overlap onto a 1' by 10' side shelf, there is space between them for back-side access like 'Mr.Rodgers Neighborhood'. The construction is solid layered styrafoam and mostly complete here in April 2007 with the exception of painting some background, ground cover, and some detail, which changes with the mood, ie mornings the station people arrive and in the evenings they about-face for departures. There is one train, two trolleys, the pair of gondalas, and one of two airplanes that all move plus two buildings with active chimney's. All of the buildings in "Holidaysrock" are fully lit, night/evening photos to follow. A motion picture of the the 'view' from the engine is in the works, check back at a future date for the video, perhaps around Christmas 2007.
The set includes train station, hospital and police station, post office, the fire department is responding to Ebenezer Scrooge's house which caught fire in the residential section, Wrigley Field ballpark, town square with ice rink, street shopping and entertainers, track maintenance taking place inside one of the tunnels, mountain ranges with an alien invasion by Darth Vader and a US lead counter defense, ski gondolas across the mountain pass and water fall, casino and pub, christmas tree lot ajacent to the town church, a park on the eastbank and Campbell Soup watershed on the westbank, American-border lighthouse south of the great PLATTE lake, and Canadian-station on the north side leading to the North Pole, complete with gated entrance where sentries disapprove the Grinch's entry, Charlie Brown and Sponge Bob help load Santa's sleigh, Frosty's ice rink, Nittany Lion FunRun, WinterWarlock and Chris Kringle plan strategies, The Abominable Snowman with Rudolph and Ukorn sled, Snoopy and Tigger relax at the ElfSpa, etc.
