Engine, train cars: Playmobil

Crates, barrels: PTE

As a kid in 1983, I drooled over the GI Joe Tyco Electric Train Set. In 2007, I decided that it was time to finally make the train that I always wanted for my Joes. I looked into different scales of trains that I could buy and modify. One day, I bought a Playmobil box car on super clearance for 5$. When I stood Joes next to it, the scale looked right, so I set out to buy all the cars and the engine and paint them. After 5 years of collecting the parts a few false starts, I am finally done and really satisfied with the result.
