Stand aside and don't get in my way, there are places to go and people to see.  What better way to reach your destination than a 8x10 train station playhouse with a very irregular and parse schedule?

Delightful details and characteristics make this plan a joy to build and play on.  Plenty of window openings to allow light in, elevated platform and station clock add to the charm.  Your kids may never get to that meeting, but I'm sure they'll be just fine with that.  Of course you can add both a small train and large train play-set if your heart desires.
