Kiddie train made out of plastic barrels
My husband Bert Wilkins has enjoyed your magazine for a long time. After reading the article in Vol. 12, No. 5, 1988, about the kiddie train made out of 55-gal. barrels, he decided to build one using plastic barrels, pulled by an AN. He has taken it to many parades, fairs and other various events all over eastern Colorado since 1988. He never charges children to ride. Recently, he added a bigger barrel so parents and bigger kids could also ride. Bert has built other things he's read about in your magazine, too. In addition, his hobby is restoring old wooden windmills. We have a nice collection on our farm. (Mrs. Bert Wilkins, Yuma, Colo.)
