The Overnight Express.

It’s 10:30 on a cool summer evening. The Overnight Express, all lights ablaze, is making it’s way through the darkness, having left Point A just before sunset and due to arrive at Point B just before sunrise. The Overnight Express lives up to it’s motto: “from dusk to dawn”.

A long passenger train, pulled by a powerful steam locomotive, all cars are painted in a beautiful twilight blue. The train consists of a big steam engine and tender, three passenger coaches and a caboose.

The overall length of this train is 25 inches.

Part of a line of traditional floor trains. These trains are slightly larger than, and do not interact with foreign manufactured train sets, such as Thomas and Brio, that require wooden tracks. The cars are connected with a hook and loop system. This permits longer trains to be made up and when played with can make a pleasant “clicking” sound, reminiscent of real railroad cars.

The cars of the train are constructed of pine, birch and maple. All finishes used are lead free. Made in U.S.A.

The cars making up the Overnight Express can be purchased separately. Follow these links for details:

SPECIAL OPTION: The standard locomotive tender for the Overnight Express is decorated in what I call a “sleepy Z” pattern. There is another pattern, “starry night,” available. See for yourself at this link

If you would like the starry night tender for your Overnight Express instead of the sleepy Z, just mention it in the “note from buyer” when purchasing. The locomotive is decorated the same for both tenders.

WARNING: Choking Hazard. Small parts. Not for children under three years of age.

Like all trains of this size and type, these trains are not recommended for children under three years of age due to the use of small parts, which may pose a choking hazard.
