I didn't have much time to get on with the tender, carriages and guards' van last week because I was busy preparing for my two tatting groups but here they are at last. I was in such a hurry to get them photographed that I've only just noticed that the hand rail on the guards' van isn't straight!
There are three different carriages and I could use them to make a frieze for a play room if my grandchildren were younger but as they're 13 and 8 I don't think they'd appreciate it.
When I did the train I hadn't thought of doing the carriages until Jon suggested it. When I wanted to mount them I found that I had only one more piece of card the same colour so I had to photograph each part one at a time. Sorry about that!

I am so impressed with your tatted train set. The train set is awesome. This would be lovely framed!!

One of my Christmas projects is to mount it onto fabric which will then be turned into a wall hanging. I've pinned it in place and it measures a tad over a meter long.
The ladies in my tatting groups have tatted flowers for the field of wild flowers that the train is running through.

The wall haning will be beautiful with the trains and flowers. Please post a picture when you finish this project, I'd love to see how it looks. Happy Holidays!
