Further Adventures in Woodworking

 I made another train for my daughter's birthday. I did not paint it this time, though I may get around to that sometime.

I turned the round "boiler" on my wood lathe. The wooden holders for the boiler I cut with my scroll saw. The pattern for the engine is largely my own design.
 She got a "Driver" figurine from the Thomas the Train series at Christmas time, so I made the engineer box to custom fit.
I also made the freight cars have some actual freight, which are really more like tinker toys. I got the idea for that out of a magazine. 

I think they turned out nice.
