I saw this on ebay. Fell in love and the auction ended early and the person selling it never responded so my guess is I missed it. I am wondering who makes it though so I can try and get it cheaper or through some place that has free shipping. Nova naturals drives me nuts and I really try to avoid them cause they charge so much for shipping.<br><br><br><a href="http://www.novanatural.com/toys/wooden-train" target="_blank">http://www.novanatural.com/toys/wooden-train</a>

Nova makes me crazy with their shipping, too. And I think their train is over-priced. This is a nice (and reasonable) alternative that I almost bought but opted for a shorter version: <a href="http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=34279914" target="_blank">http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php...ng_id=34279914</a> GL!

This fellow on etsy makes some too...<br><a href="http://www.etsy.com/shop/Geppetto" target="_blank">http://www.etsy.com/shop/Geppetto</a><br><br>
Look on his past items, he does a sweet little block train and a classic train. Much less expensive than the rest.

It looks like a Spiel and Holz piece to me.

I like this one from palumba. Buy a bit more and you can get free shipping. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br><a href="http://www.palumba.com/product/42/" target="_blank">http://www.palumba.com/product/42/</a>

I love the Nova natural one cause he can put lots of people in it and push them around. I know he would like that feature but the price is killing me. Anyone know of a co-op for Spiel and Holtz?<br>
I am loving the look and price of the palumba one Does anyone have it? Can you put people in it. Like doll house size people.

Thanks everyone!! I found the one from palumba on another site where they had free shipping if you spent 75 which is the price of the train. Its by camden rose. The more I look at it the more thats the one for my son. I like it so much!!

IMO, Camden Rose stuff is nicer than Spiel and Holtz. They use harder woods and sand the items better.

We have <a href="http://www.mainetoys.com/Catalog/Choo-Choo_Train/choo-choo_train.html" target="_blank">this one</a> and my boys love it. It has six cars and lots of room to haul people, "logs", rocks and other items. We also got ours for $35 at a local Waldorf school faire, which makes it even more awesome. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

ours is identical to the camden rose one, although i'm not sure it's camden rose. it's up in the closet for christmas, so i can't give it a full review, but i love it! roomy and beautiful... big but not overkill. i love the variation of woods used; looks so rich and inviting!
