I was feeling the urge that I wanted to achieve something a little different from this train than the usual

Thanks for sharing your work with us. The workmanship is really sweet. We would love to see more photos of the train. What materials did you use and how did you finish it? How long did it take to build it and how do you feel about the plan set you used? Were there any difficulties building the set?

Two good looking trains like the idea of putting letters on the carriages, are they fitted down or can they be removed so the little one can replace them to learn to spell

Nice job on the train and I really like customizing it with the letter cars.  The plans on this site really allow many flexibilities for our clients.  Was this an easy build?

Both trains took about 3 days to build.
It was built from my offcuts of pine.
I built all the bases with wheels first and gave me a sense of how long it really is.
I built the engine and other carriages but left the flatbed carriages till last.
As i don't have grandkids yet i figured i would make the train ornamental.
I have early stages esophagus cancer, so going through a bucket list of ornamental and play toys so future grandkids will know of my love for building with wood (have made a few pieces of furniture as well).
This is the 3rd toy i built from the site and the plans are the best on the planet.
The step by step process is fantastic and the beautiful part is it allows your imagination and big kid inside come out.
Keep up the good work of putting those plans out for all cause it has certainly ignited my imagination after 15 years since i built my last toy.

Thanks for the explanation above, and the trains did turn out great.
I am in the same boat as you are, just a different kind on Cancer.

It helps to go out to the shop, with these great plans from Toymakingplans.com, and I too think they are the best, and easiest to follow I have seen.

Thank goodness for the Forum, where we can see toys hand built, and talk to like minded people about making toys.

Hi Peter B

Painting so far so good.
Do you paint all your projects after you put them together?

I am not a very good painter with a brush, so I might have all kinds of things painted, including me.  Paint has a tendency to go everywhere when I paint with a brush.

Good job

Colors do look great.

I am going to remember your color combination, so I can do one like it.

Thanks for sharing.
