So my son loves trains. All trains. Loves… LOVES… them. His personal railroad is one of those wooden sets with Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends. Actually I was completely psyched he took to this stuff – I can be a little railfan-y myself. I wanted, however, to tie in a little nautical thing. Brio makes a train ferry, but its a little lame seeming. I began to think: “Tim, you can do better.” So voila, boatbuilding, micro-size. I am pretty pleased, actually. They may be rumors that some defective maple kitchen drawers were harmed in the making of this boat. I can neither confirm nor deny this.
