I made this steam engine for my 4 yer old son; he loves trains. I am hoping that this piece will help him retain his enjoyment and passion that he has for trains through out his life. I knew that I hit a home run in his eyes when he told me I did a good job and it was pretty. Made it all worth wild. I received a lathe from my wife this past Christmas, and this was the first time I ever used a lathe. I can see now how addicting it is going to be. The materials I used are Walnut and Ash. As always all comments are welcome.

Plan is from Toys and Joys #94

( 2015 is the year Carter was born and his initials are CJM )

Now to make more pieces for his train.

Very nice. colors and execution, and it makes me excited to make one myself, but I have to say that my bucket list is big.

Yes Sir Toymaker you know something about trains. As close to an authentic reproduction in wood as I have seen. Makes you think a little steam introduced and those wheels will carry it right off the track, BEAUTIFUL.
