You've seen them at playgrounds all over the place, and for very good reason.  Wooden play trains are a major hit with both boys and girls alike, and with all the train based children's stories, movies and real life wonder, they make for amazing play-sets kid's can't get enough of.  I must admit that I spent many hours playing on my church's train play-set, and that enjoyment drove the Sunny Valley Locomotive design.

In this plan, you'll receive the blueprints for the:

  • Engine

  • Handcar
  • Caboose

If you choose to build the entire plan, you'll have a play train that features 7 unique cars, each measuring 7' long and 4' wide, with a total length of almost 50'.  Each one offers something different children can interact with and all come with a lot of fun.  Make your child's dream come true and build them their own, personal locomotive!
