as I see you buy already finished pieces of wood. Do you but them in a Hobby Store? As of me, I also started to construct something. My dream is either to build something like a high line park, or simulate some european line


Yes, the entire set (trains and stations) are made from wood. They were originally used as play-toys when I was in lower school. I have been looking for some that are similar, but I haven't found the right sizes yet. Good luck with your dream! (btw, I have that Grand central bus too!)

I usually buy the my stuff either at hardware srote, or Hobbycraft/Art Supplies. I use such materials as Balsa, Illustration Board, foamboard, etc.

Art supply stores have very good pieces of wood that can be glued together to form a seemless train. Later on you can use sandpaper to round the edges.


If you want ... I can share my how-to-s with you, using private messaging.

once upon a time, I bought cityblocks set in Toys R US.

I played with it for a while and then I started to attach pieces together.





here I used some Poplar sticks, which I bought in Doody store in Brooklyn. But now, they no longer carry crafts stuff.


These are done both of wood, and from Illustration board, where sheets of basswood are used as a backbone..


feel free to do it the my way, maybe you will do it better then me.









PS the Grand Central Bus is from Rite Aid store
