I don’t actually think I’ll be building adult size rocking toys in the very near future. It is an idea though. One of the pattern catalogs I have does offer adult size rocking horses.

William I like the solid boiler. I have this plan from somewhere, dont remember where I got it, but it shows slats around the boiler. This is much better.

I’m sure it’s the same plan Gary. As a toy, the slats look decent on it. After seeing the one built by Bones though, I like the solid look much better. I usually try to mix up the colors when I build these too. This one is going to be only two colors on the train though. I’m going to do dark walnut stain for the train itself with colored accents. I haven’t decided yet between blue or red for the accents. I picked this pattern up a couple of years ago. It’s getting about time to buy another set. These are getting worn thin. I, like Chips and many others though, love trains. I grew up spending a lot of time at my Grandfather’s house. He was a painter for Illinois Central Railroad for forty-two years. When we were kids, he’s carry us to work with him on weekends. For years, while growing up, it was a childhood dream to be a conductor when I grew up. We have strange wishes when we’re young. I also spent some times with my uncle (grandfather’s brother) growing up and wanted to be like him when I grew up. How many of you ever wished to be a train hopping hobo?
