Second train I have made, this one for my second grandson. The flat car has a folding dowel that will fit in the bottom of the car so it won’t fall off during transportation, then after folding it down you can haul the homemade Lincoln Logs on the back haul. LOL The cattle car top is removable so you can haul things in it also. Ahh the fun of building the grandkids toys.

Nice work.

I am going to have to steal some design ideas!

I like to make wooden trains also. Usually I make name trains.

My preference is for the steam engines; so I can make the tenders! Usual train—steam engine , tender, name , and then caboose!
