This is a twin bed that built in a train theme (see train bed). I’ve built a few of them before in a Polar Express and Harry Potter themes. This one was built in a regular train theme in blue.

The light is controlled by a push switch at the foot of the bed. Notice the slat system. To avoid the need for a special bunk mattress, I added a slat pack with little spacing in between them. This bed was completed in September 2011. There are some building pictures below but more can be found on our archive pages.

In the write-up I linked a Harry Potter and Polar Express version. Let me know which one you liked the best or if there is another theme for a train I should do.

That’s alright. I like it.
