This is a display the Oklahoma Village Collectors Club does every
year at a local retirement facility. The first display was about the size of a card table, sitting on the floor. That was 2003. We have now progressed to this 8' x 16' village on a
raised platform with a hands-on control box that the residents can operate. By pushing one button the train will begin to travel around & thru the village. Pushing the 2nd
button sounds the train whistle. Not many can walk by without stopping to make the train go a couple of times. There are 16 separate sections of 24" x 48" styrofoam.
Each year we allow any member (currently 40 members) to volunteer to make a small display on a section, not knowing how the adjoining piece will be decorated.
The sections are numbered 1thru 16, and are placed on the platform to a matching set of numbers. The train track is then secured, houses wired, snow sprinkled, switch
flipped, and.....we have a Christmas Village for the residents & families to enjoy til after the first of the year. We all agree that we get more enjoyment out of watching
their smiles & reactions to the village than they do watching it.
