Sorrry, I cropped the picture out because of background clutter.

The train has only the couplers-(eyes and hooks) of metal; all else is wood. Also the eyes and hooks are the only pieces I did not make—excluding the dowels for axels.

The wood was torched lightly then a spray poly put on.

Appreciate the kind comments.

I do not ususally even pattern the letters. I make rectangles the same size and a few more than I need; then, scissors out the letters. I then use those as patterns. Every train etc. seems to want a slightly different letter from all the others anyway! The wood is the boss, I am merely the follower.

It’s a beautiful and a very long train. I’m sure kids will get loads of fun playing with it.

The “kid” this train is for is ME!—Some people think kid is limited to those of a certain young age.

I really won’t play too much with it! I think my great grandson may eventually be the main engineer.

Thank You for the kind words. I do like the torched effect on quite a few things. Wanted to see how it looked on a name train.
The length total is 52 inches.
