On 12-14-19 I’m in Palatine IL and I’m sharing the Christmas Lionel Train Model Railroad Layout, at the Busch Auto Service Center.
I’m with John Busch III, and he’s 3rd Generation at the Service Center. His grandfather John Busch opened the shop in 1946, and his father John Busch II introduced him to model railroading. In 2006 John Busch III started with a simple loop around a Christmas tree in the showroom, and it has grown every year since to what you see today.
The layout takes over two months to build and is ready to view by Thanksgiving. Every area on the layout is amazingly detailed, and many areas of the layout have a theme. There are 8 trains running in a town, a farm, a ski Mountain, an amusement park, and a Mickey Mouse area too.
This is just a wonderful experience to view.
John Busch III is at the Goodyear Tire & Service Center which is located at 137 S. Northwest Highway, Palatine IL 60074 and the layout is open during business working hours from Thanksgiving through the last business day of December.
