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.

I know this is an old post I'm replying to, but does anyone have the train plans? I would love to make this for my new grandson now that life is returning to normal and ill have time to fire up the Mark 7
