2020 Train Car for my 3 year old.

Post by kcarchitect » Mon Dec 09, 2019 11:27 am

My second to youngest LOVES trains and is old enough to compete for siblings class this year. When asked what he wanted to do he enthusiastically responded with a TRAIN! Here's what I came up with. Only three wheels actually will touch the track and yes, the headlight will light up during the race.

Super cool!
I just finished a Civil War steam engine called The General using 3D printed parts. It still needs weight, wheels, and axles.
My oldest daughter now says want to design and build an train engine herself.

How does the headlight light up during the race?

I used a small flashlight/laser pointer that runs on batteries inside the hole for the headlight. We will turn it on right before the race.
