With your back to the house and facing the train cars, turn right and start walking along the tree line, keeping the trees in the tree line to your left, walk up a little include and continue around until you see the multi-trunk tree just a couple of steps into the tree line. The box is in the middle of this bundle of 6 or so trees.
