This is my earliest recollection of a Christmas layout. If you look close, It is a Marx windup. Till I was about 6 yeas old, my dad would set the entire Christmas display up with Mom's help on Christmas Day.
After that the tradition was to prepare it all and do it together during the week before.

I also had windup trains until I was 8 years old before getting a lionel diesel switcher from santa ahhh memories of a simpler time.
