Dogs vs. Lionel train

Every Christmas season we set up the electric train that we've had in the family for decades.  The display used to be somewhat elaborate with two tracks and two switches.  The Grouch children would play with it for hours and in fine Addams family style placed Playskool people on the tracks to be run down by the speeding locomotive.  Putting a toy car or truck on the tracks with Playskool people in them was a favorite too.
These days with only Young Son still at home and he being almost past teenagerhood we set up only a single track and no switches.  But not all is lost, the dogs decided to play with it this year!
First, Kerby came to investigate the noisy contraption circling under the tree.
Kerby is still trying to figure out what the heck this thing is!
Big sisterdog Molly shows up and demonstrates how toy trains are to be dealt with.  Roscoe can't believe what he is seeing.
