Toys are one of my favorite things to make also. I should of thought about a little bigger box before I started. I hope it will be passed down.

I started on dump trucks again for Christmas donations yesterday.

wrmnfzy and better half, nice job on the Christmas train. Looks like Santa may be riding the rails this year instead of runners.

Great Book Of Wooden Toys - Norm Marshall has several trains and is highly recommended. It has bee published under several slightly different titles and is cheap when purchased used.
