    Just wondering what everyone got from under the tree for your layout? Me, I got a Walthers DQ Grill and Chill kit and a jig with magnets to hold things in place while glueing and drying. I also received a magnetic wrist band that holds metal parts and fastners while working on the layout.
    Anyone else?

    These two Lionel authorized Christmas Tree ornaments from Hallmark.

    And a gift card to the local hobby shop for Christmas.

    (Now I'm wondering if my wife had a Christmas song stuck in her head while choosing Christmas presents for me? :ROFLMAO: )

    My wife gave me the Kato 20th Century Limited train. I had to dig out a bunch of track to snap together and make a temporary loop on the floor to test it out.

    Not N Scale, but my wife got me Conrail and Its Predecessors by Brian Solomon which I know I'll enjoy. I hope to get back to modeling in 2021.

    Boxcab, it's getting to the point that I really don't need much anymore. I had always looked forward to getting a new locomotive or sets of cars for Christmas, but at this point I already have more locomotives, freight and passenger cars than I would ever need and most everything to put on the layout. But there is always something new coming out and I really need to stay more focused on what I really want to do and start thinning the herd. So next Christmas I won't be expecting (or looking ) for anything.......but that can always change.

    My wife got me a BUNCH of Unitrack for my new HCD layout, and "authority to purchase" 2 inch extruded foam board (4'x8' is hard to wrap & fit under the tree) for said layout.

    My son got me a really nice woo woo woo 32717 all-in-one precision screwdriver set with case (useful for a lot of things in addition to MRR).

    And, likely applicable to some of my posts here on TrainBoard, my daughter got me a T shirt that says "I'm not arguing, I'm explaining why I'm right!"

    Oh, my daughter got me one of those magnetic wrist bands for holding small tools & hardware last year. It is wonderful!

    The system replaces vendors that don't advertise on TB with redacted words, in this case woo woo woo. So your "K l e i n" screwdriver tool set was mistaken for that large mail order train place in Maryland. :whistle:

    It was collateral editing. :D

    Wow... So the policy is not to mention the name of a retailer that does not advertise on TB.

    OK, fair enough.

    But I did not mention the name of the well known (if not intelligent enough to advertise here) retailer. I mentioned the name of a well known US manufacturer of tools, some of which are useful in model railroading.

    By the way, the product was purchased at Home Depot, a retailer who also does not advertise here. I guess we will find out if they are similarly banned.

    But the (less than intelligent) implementation of said policy is such that we cannot even use a word that just happens to be used in, but is not the entire name of, a certain retailer that does not advertise on TB?

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (just in case...)

    You can mention Home Depot or even post a link to your screwdriver set because HD doesn't sell trains and compete with vendors that do pay to advertise here.I

    The filtering is a bit wonky and not very intelligent and often filters out things that shouldn't as you have experienced. Collateral damage...

    Santa brought me a Set of 12 IM SP first run boxcars. (6/96 on the still shrink wrapped package so he’s had them on a shelf for a couple decades)

    I’ve been told, but have not mentioned to Santa, that I will have to change the trucks on all 12 to MT for reliable operation behind her AC12.

    I did not receive any train or layout related anything. But I did get a new pair of house shoes and this,
    one of my favorites.

    Actually, the Grinch did not steal Christmas as Diane & I had agreed to go lightly, so we can get a new couch for the den, after the 1st.

    This gift did make it relaxing for my decoder installs in my IM Black Widows.

    Be well,
    Carl
