Taking pictures of trains for the blog is fun but also can be a hassle. I love the trains but finding a natural setting for them outside of a layout can be trying.
Here is a perfect solution from Hammacher Schlemmer. I have seen it discussed in other forums but I could never remember where or how to get it. This flavor might be a bit pricey but I like the kit form that can go basically anywhere. It's nice especially if you have to insure a substantial number of toys and trains.
