The National Christmas Tree Railroad, located at the base of the National Christmas Tree in Washington, D.C., has wowed onlookers annually since 1994 with a large-scale model train scene consisting of 10 train loops, three trolleys, three villages and more than 1,000 feet of track.

This year is no exception; Union Pacific armour yellow locomotives are pulling simulated shipments around the giant tree and continue to dazzle White House goers until Jan. 1, 2014.
