In a quiet clearing high in the mountains where the sound of deer crossing the cold crisp snow can be heard, if you listen closely, you may hear the approaching sounds of a steam locomotive. The sun has started to set behind the tallest peaks, the train is glistening in the fading light, and Santa is making his final descent to deliver the Christmas gifts to the family living in the serene cottage.
Thomas Kinkade Studios presents, Christmas Light Express, our newest collaboration with Lionel Trains. With this painting, we pay tribute to our founder, Thomas Kinkade. Thom grew up in the Sierra Mountains in Northern California with fascination for nature and the world around him. One special Christmas, a young Thom was gifted a Lionel train set. Blessed with a wonderful, vivid imagination, he would dream of faraway places and the adventures in rail travel one might have to reach them.
