My Electric Train

Carlton Gerbracht

For a long time I wanted and electric train and when I awoke last Christmas morning I was surprised to find a great big one under our Christmas tree.

There were so many tracks with it that it took us almost an hour just to put them together. We planned them so they pass behind the piano and take up nearly the whole room.

The set consists of six cars with a caboose with a light on for the end. We have a tunnel that lights up when the train comes and on the other side of the room we have a crossing gate that goes down when the train gets to it.

My brothers and I spend hours playing with the set, loading and unloading the cars and stopping the train at different stations.
