A new attraction has pulled into the station at the Central Interior Railway and Forestry Museum.

A new wooden train playground has been opened to the public.

Board Director Larry Townsend made the train and says it took about three weeks to get the project done.

Wooden Train 1“And basically the material comes from you local lumber yard,” says Townsend, “and it basically explains how to do everything, about 5,000 parts and assembly is required.”

The total cost of the project came to $2500.

It was paid for through a grant from the Community Foundation and donations from Dollar Saver Lumber and Carrier Lumber.
