    Our daughter complained that ‘Daddy has too many trains’ and asked if she could ‘have a pink one’.

    After some secret sanding, masking and spraying in the garage this was her Christmas present…

    Here’s a ride along video on YouTube of it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FpBHPiRx–o

    Even a dedicated box, wow.

    One super happy daughter I can imagine.

    The box is actually for holding trading cards but is just the right length for O gauge rolling stock, being just long enough for a Big Big coach.

    The images I did using Photoshop (I can use Photoshop to survive, but it’s not elegant!) printed on to A3 paper and stuck on with spray mount.

    I think the font I found was called Grenadine MVB which is a close match to the original Triang font.

    I love this ingenuity Richard. Great find this box!

    It must feel awsome to surprise your little girl with this.
