My latest toy project towards my goal of 300 toys before the end of the year This small train set was made from a book by Jim Makowicki,:”Making Heirloom Toys”. I altered the design slightly: (Locomotive is a little different). I like the toy because it is durable and I can add additional cars very simply.

wow, that is an impressive goal 300 toys before year end. You will make a lot of kids (young and old) very hapoy. The train looks great.

What a goal, 300 toys, wow. I bought that book a few years back and have needed a kick in the pants to make some. My grand-daughters are older and wouldn’t enjoy them much, but I have a couple of adopted grandsons that most surely would love them. This is a beauty and a keepsake you can get down on the floor and play with.

That is an awesome train. I have a 2 year old going on 3. He would love a toy like that, it’s too bad his pa has a few more years to go before his skill level is on track.
