The completed train bed
The train is back from graphics and completed. Well almost. I am thinking about putting a bell on the front and I need to add the child’s name under the window. Other than that it is finished. After I got it back from graphics, I just reassembled it cut slats and wired the lights. I put a small knob on the headboard to activate a touch sensor. I mounted the control box under the slat cleats, hidden and out of the way. The wire runs under the cleats to the front where it plugs in to the cord leading form the light.

All I have to do is make some installation instruction. It assembles very easy and fast, but I like to make step-by-step instructions to be safe.

This has been an enjoyable project and I look forward to putting it on my site and building more.

Here are my note for this project. They may not be helpful to anyone, because I’m the only one that can decipher my chicken scratch.

That bed is really cool. Any young child that likes trains would want one of those for sure.

Chris, this has been an enjoyable series to follow. Thanks for taking the time and putting in the effort to enable the rest of us to follow the construction of this bed.
