Last call to board for an awesome sleeping adventure. This bed is a variation of my standard train bed. Just changed the colors and graphics up a little. It was completed in December 2010. It was one of the Christmas order.

It has a real working light with a three stage touch sensor on the inside of the bed. The ladder can be moved to either side, and it has storage area under the bed for the extra carry on.

This project utilized some bending plywood on both the front and the top cap.
Here is where I blogged on the orginal one: Train Blog

This is very cool. The colors are great. I’m thinking it would look awesome in black & gold like the Purdue Boilermaker train!
