I started to made this train in 1976 for our 1 year old son, I gave him the engine and coal car that year. Then I made him a new car each year for his birthday. I had a brass tag made with (For David From Dad 1976) that I put on the bottom of the engine.
We got the train out this summer and gave it back to our son, he then gave 3 cars to our 3 year old grandson for his birthday. I will make one more car next year for our grandson birthday, and have a brass tag made with
(For Logan From Grandpa 2012) to put on the bottom.
The drawings for the train are from Love Built Toys.
The train is made out Oak, Maple, and Walnut with Deftoil for the finish.
