Toy Yard Trains for the Grandson and Nephew
For Christmas, 2012, I built two yard engines with a couple of cars for each. Both had turned parts, one of Purple Heart and Oregon Myrtlewood while the other was of Poplar and Fig. I painted the one and only applied clear polyurethane to the other. One of the trains is for a 3 year old nephew while the other is for my 18 month old grandson. My intention is to add more cars as the kids get older. I also want to do a different engine. Both boys liked the trains but the 3 year old spent a couple of hours playing with his while the 18 month old only spend minutes.
