After posting the picks of the train I made for my little girl on Facebook. I Got my first order for two of them. And received another order as well.

The two trains was basically finished on Saturday evening, and the original order was only with 3 buckets and the engine.
But on Saturday night I could not sleep, so I got the idea, decided to add the detachable dining carts on the first buckets, just to add a bit more “fun time” for the two boys who will be playing with these soon.

Decided to make them detachable so that it does not decrease the amount of “garden soil” that can be loaded.

Trains not painted, the mother wants to paint them herself.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks JIM.
ROB, yes I did cut them myself, used the hole saw and bench drill. 36 wheels in total. Took some time.
I have a very comfortable bar chair in my workshop, after the first 10 or so, I pulled the chair closer, sat back, and relaxed while the drill does “all” the work.
