The engine and coal car where made over a year ago and I finally decided to finish the rest of the train . The wood is mostly from an assortment of factory skid wood and the odd piece of walnut and oak. The entire train is about 7 feet in lenght. You can judge it’s size by comparing to the 12×12 floor tiles. The small shelf unit keeps it all together. It will hopefully sell at some of the upcoming sales here at the community centre.

Fantastic. I want to do some similar train/truck toys. I love the storage unit as well. Flash idea I had was that it would be cool to make a storage box that came apart to form a set of tracks. Maybe not realistic though.

Love the train and your idea for storing the pieces. This should sell right away.

Awesome toy train! Great details and like that it’s long and has a nice display stand. I’m sure it will be a hit. Kids will love it. Great job!
