This is my very first woodworking project that I made about two years ago.
It is completely nade from scraps, cuttoffs and regular junk laying around. There is a switch behind the train and the lamp turns around and tilts. This allows to control how much light gets into the room. Works well as dim control.

Great idea. Love the train application and the dimmer included. Nice when we can do something different and special for the Keiki(Hawaiian—for kids).

If I still smoked cigarettes, I’d be tempted to make a version of your train with an ashtray smoke stack for the end table so it looked like it was rolling down the track. Thanks for sharing.

I love it. I like the string of cars as shelves behind it,too. Great concept. I have an elderly uncle who collects model trains so I think I have to try one ,too. I bet he’ll get a kick out of it. Thanks for the inspiration.
