This photo shows Paul's Large Scale Christmas trains running outside in November, 2012 for a special public event. [To see the photo in question, please click here: http://familygardentrains.com/newbost/n ... v_2012.jpg
Thanks for getting in touch. Sadly the train in the photo you asked about has been sold out. However there are lots of other great trains available. May I ask if you want an "indoor" train or an "outdoor" train.
Also, the age(s) of the grandchild/children you're shopping for.
If they're under 8, I might recommend the Bachmann L'il Big Hauler set.
The Christmas set is here:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0090T ... ATHOVCDSUW
They're big enough to use outside but small enough to run around a tree.
The other sets suitable for kids are on this page:http://garden-train-store.com/begin/kids_trains.htm
If you were really thinking about setting up an indoor railroad for the kids, and you'll have at least one over eight soon, I'd consider the trains on this page:http://www.bigtrainstore.com/o_gauge/o_gauge.htm
Hope this helps, please let me know if it doesn't or if you have any followup questions. - Paul
