When my Dad said that he was going to give us a train for our tree, I had in mind a rather small one. I assumed that the track would encircle the base of our tree with a circumference of about a foot or so. So, I was a little surprised with the large scale train and the track that can make a 4' circle or a 10'x 6' oval. Jericho almost had a heart attack when he saw the box and couldn't wait for Daddy to come home and put it together. Thanks, Grandpa!
