Busch Christmas diorama's are popular with collectors and model railway enthusiasts alike.
The animated scene is housed within a perspex case to keep it dust free.
The Busch 7618 Christmas diorama sees Santa aboard a canoe!! gliding very quietly through the snowy forest delivering his toys and gifts.
No mention of the whereabouts of the reindeer - will be a challenge delivering in arid areas with just the canoe!
Perhaps this is an earlier scene before he teamed up with them.
