All aboard! It's the busiest time of year at Village Train and Hobby in Windsor.
All aboard! It's the busiest time of year at Village Train and Hobby in Windsor. The store carries a wide variety of Lionel and H-O trains, tracks, cars and accessories.

Owner Jeff Olin says model train starter kits make a great holiday gift. He typically sells 100 of them each Christmas season. Olin says 10 years after the movie's release, The Polar Express continues to inspire new devotees. He says a train circling the tree is synonymous with Christmas.

"I think it's the tradition. A lot of the families that come in, their father had a train set under the Christmas tree or their grandfather. So, you really build on a tradition or you start a tradition for your family. I think when they think toy trains, they certainly think of Christmas," said Olin.

Olin says annual limited edition rail cars are also a popular seller at Christmas. Village Train boasts a 36 foot layout with 10 running locomotives. Hours are 10 to 8 Monday through Saturday. More info at VillageTrain.com.
