Dude Builds a HUGE Lionel Train Christmas Village in His Basement
Looking at this time lapse of Dave Hohman setting up his Christmas village train set in his basement, it’s almost dizzying thinking about the time, money, and patience that went into this.
It’s amazing when it’s finally set up and running, with multiple train lines, street, shop, and house lights twinkling away, Santa making a flyover, someone snow blowing their driveway, and much more.
There are two easy chairs facing the layout. It must be wonderful to sit there at night and watch it all in action.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound.
