Home-Built Thomas The Train
I built a 2 by 4 frame on top of my ATV and framed in the cab and front end with 2 by 2 studs. Then I covered the cab, front end, and skirting with 1/8-in. paneling. I used half of a 55-gal. plastic drum for the round part of the engine top, and half of a 16-gal. plastic drum for the front. My wife painted the face. We used colored duct tape for the striping and wheel spokes.
My grandson enjoys riding the train with me and throwing candy to children along parade routes. (James P. Kay, 703 Clay, Minneapolis, Kan. 67467 ph 785 392-2241; cell 785 392-7619)
