these are wooden toy trains that i am making now for selling , they are made with all salvaged wood’s , sassafras , antique southern heart pine, red oak, red cedar, the wood that are not salvaged that i used are bubinga and padauk, i also used walnut. the main train cars both have inlayed wood into the front and also on the sides of both train had bubinga and the other has padauk, i painted a fire box into both main engine cars for effect, there are three other train cars that go with each main engine, the last car is a caboose and has a removable top, the wheels are painted black and have a full length axle that is red oak, they are coated with polyurethane. these are so much fun for me to make and i hope to be successful in making more for others who would like one for there child or grandchild, if you would like one made, contact me via a personal message or my email address which is located on my main page, thank you for looking at my project and thank you for any comments made…grizzman

Nice work Grizz.
They have the “Grizz” touch… some little kid will get a toy that will last a lifetime and be passed on from generation to generation.

I really wish I could make something like this for my nephew and our grandson.

Amazing, Grizz. Amazing.

Great work Grizz. Nice detail, such as painting the firebox. Best wishes regarding sales. My guess is that you’ll do fine.

Solid. They are really cool. That engineer won’t be getting cold that’s for sure. Making someone else toys with your toys, it’s almost perpetual motion… or locomotion.

Just right for younguns Grizz. The warm colors and contrasting woods give these trains a warmth that any child is bound to love and probably pass down to their own kids some day.
