About: I am an author and a maker. My current project is Santa's Shop. I'm working on a science fiction type book--more later. @EngineerRigsby

This is rail car number six (3d printed) in what (I hope) will be a series of ten, one published every two weeks until Christmas. This O gauge car is part of an active train.

    This is a very cute car design. I love the idea of the reindeer swinging while on the train. Can't wait to see the full train!
