Even though myy Great Granddaughter is only 4, I thought that I would give her this train I made out of Oak, I wasn’t sure if little girls would like a train like this but all the mothers at work said yes she would like it, they are not just for boys….I have also made her a little wagon out of Cedar and Pine, and a couple other little scrollsaw pieces that I have done for her and saved.

I can just see all the hours of love you put into it. Oh I think she will love it…my wife told me the other day I need to make a animal train set for one of our Grandkids.

It is amazing how well grand daughters take care of their trains, no worries that a boy will toss it in the pool or worse leave it out in the rain! Girls have a whole different take on sentimental stuff, and you scored a home run with this one grandpa.
