How to convince the Mrs to let you keep rolling stock inside...

I had a brainstorm, and suggested to SWMBO that my new caboose would make a cool Christmas tree stand, and she agreed! It looks even better in person, I think she did a great job!

Trains and Christmas. Like, there's an argument against that?

I suggested a loop around the dining room but it got voted down. Maybe next year!

At one point in the house I lived in before we got married, I had the Chloe inside because I ran out of room in the garage. She saw that, made a mental note and put her foot down on trains in the house. But she has graciously allowed and even purchased train themed decorative items. and small models. Mostly she is in charge of the house decorating which is fine with me, since I have the three car garage to myself...
