Making My World

This post is written for Friday Fictioneers. Credit the photo to Sandra Crook.


I pick up the little station master and put him on the other side of the tracks. Oh, and the little person with the backpack and their child I’ll put beside the departing train. I’ll add a few more toy people on the station to make it look real.

And that castle. It looks too perfect. I’ll mash some of the towers just to make it look like a really old castle.

And if I don’t like that? I’ll destroy the whole damn thing and start over!

I just love my new train set my dad gave me.

    I never had a train set but I did have a dollhouse I really liked. A lovely story and well written, Danny. 🙂 — Suzanne

    Train sets are such an adorable piece of toy for children. They simply love to play with it.

    I wish we could start again like that in the real world. Good story.

    You may like to know this scene appears in many jigsaws. Train sets always fire up the imagination – people to see, journeys to take . . .

    Love it! Just how I feel when I’m building doll houses. Love building train scenes, too, but haven’t in years. Last one I did was an “Auschwitz” diorama for some presentation back in college.

    I’d love to have a bit of space to do a proper railway layout. Fun!
