Custom made trains!

I currently produce four different trains, and each order is custom made. These trains are rugged enough for small children to play with, and provides enough fun for adults to play along. Trains are painted using the customer’s requested colors, or left unpainted. Your train can be constructed of pine/fir/hemlock, or hardwood (hardwood selection limited to wood on hand). Normally, a supply of oak, mahogany, poplar, maple and alder is available. Other wood species may be available – please ask if you have a specific wood in mind.

 

Three are large trains, with each car being about 8 – 12 inches long.  A full train consists of twelve cars, and includes all cars in the freight train plus a long passenger car and a short passenger car. The roofs of the passenger cars and the caboose are removable, as are the people inside. The vehicles on the Auto Carrier are also removable, as are the logs on the Log Car. (I don’t include a load in the Side Dump Car as marbles and decorative glass pebbles can cause a choking hazard for small children. I leave the load selection to the customer.)
