Wonderful toy trains in Belhaven, NC

We finally made it to Lilly's grave earlier this week and gave her her Lilly-colored Christmas tree. It will need a fresh coat of white spray paint for next year:

On the way we saw Tow Mater (Cars movie) parked by some huge chickens!

The next day, after a most satisfying meal at Gingerbread Bakery (in Belhaven, NC) we saw that a storefront across the road that had a sign "Toy Trains of Belhaven" and decided to check it out:

Then we walked in to 300 square feet of wonderful trains!  Wow!!!!!

the man in the plaid shirt was running the train display - he knew so much about trains

I really liked the wind-up trains from the 1930s
After we watched the trains a long time, Solomon was ready to go outside, so we left Frank and Hunter inside.  Tabby borrowed my camera and took a bunch of pictures.  Here are a few:

"I gotta secret, Mama!"
"This is MY mirror!" (this dog reminded us of our dog Dixie that died almost a year ago)
I told Tabby she needs to get back to doing portraits of people:
