That looks really nice, and the price was amazing, love to see it all fixed up, and working, it looks a wide track or gauge, and what powers it?
Is it wind up or elec: or batt:?

Well think you had a bargn there, the the train looks like what is seen in a weston, not seen track as big as that here in the UK, and the train looks well made.

Love the train Carly. It will look pretty good I'm guessing running around the tree.

Lucy wants to know how the train will stay on if you attach the track to the bedroom ceiling

thanks guys it was a real bargain alright around here this size track goes for $10.00 a section if you can find it. if i find enough track i want to attach a shelf around the room about 10 inches from the ceiling. my dad did that in our basement when he had his train setup going and it is still there.

Its Garden scale track which can be obtained in the UK. There are a number of shops that sell outdoor railway material.

That sounds a great idea as it would go over top of the windows and doors and all round the room

got around to sorting the track from the train show and found i am one curved section short of a full circle so i am going to try and make one. i figure i can take a piece of pvc trim the same thickness and use a router on a trammel to cut the arcs. now i just need to make a trammel and a large beam compass so i can get to work. straight track would have been so much easier to make just a dado blade in the table saw and cut away.
