Another “no pattern” name train.

The logs are real cherry.

The cable holding them down is also very small, but real.

These are fun, kids and adults like them. Also they are inexpensive although time heavy to make.

If anyone wants; I also have some construction progress photos. I will also share the “LOL! secretes”.

The gondola cars are hole sawed then glued to the bases. This caboose is a chunk of stairway handrail.

I have jigs made for drilling the axel holes and even for attaching the letters to the cars. I use rubber bands very snugly stretched as gluing clamps for the letters before drilling and using a wood dowel to strengthen them.

Happily answer questions and provide minimal patterns I don’t have much for patterns for these. They seem to want to make themselves as I go along.
