  • As far as I can remember, I never had a train set growing up. I don't know if I never wanted one, or just never got one when I asked for one.

    I've always been a fan of Trains, just never had the obsession like most children growing up. My son however, is different. He loves trains, he loves Thomas the Tank Engine especially.

    I've been a father for 3 years, and to an awesome, smart, and talented little boy. Sure there are days when he bugs the hell out of me, days where I am trying my best not to scream at him, but my love for him is never ending. I show him my love in many ways, one specific way is being apart of what he loves.

    We've gotten several Thomas train sets from family members and a few small ones ourselves, and recently I invested in his passion some more buy purchasing yet another set. Sure this passion for trains and Thomas may not last forever, or even for the next 3 years, but I live for the moments where my son and I can build our imaginations together.

    The Little Town of Joel, where our imagination lives.

    To my son. Love, Dad.
