Home for the Holidays Photo Contest Winners

News Select Registry – January 21, 2014
Bright lights and Lionel Trains decorate the Zayas-Collins' tree.

Thanks to everyone who shared their holiday cheer and Lionel trains traditions with us in the Home for the Holidays photo contest! From snapshots of family time around the tree to pictures of elaborate villages and train tracks, the photos entered in the contest were truly a delight.

In many cases, it was less about the photos than the story that came along with them. Our first place winner, Jim Lenz, shared this photo of his family's rail garden, assembled over more than 55 years by him and his father. Both men are professional firefighters, and their family loves showing the Train Garden off to surprised friends.

The Lenz Family Train Garden has grown over four generations and 50 years.

Without further ado, the winners of the Home for the Holidays photo contest are:
