PVC train

Recommended Posts

I know it's not computerized or anything but we made this for my dad's house just finished it tonight. It's about 30 feet long and that its tallest part is 8 foot.

We got three of the coroplast snowflakes from an online vendor. We're going to do two and white and one in blue and make them look like the smoke coming out of the Smoke Stack. Will put them on a 3 position switch to give some motion. Was a fun project now I can start on my house

Next year you should go for the 3-Dimensional version! It looks really good and I really like the design. Nice work.
