    Table for train sets

    I am looking for a table so that my son can put his train set on it like the Thomas ones or the Brio one. We've seen the one in Toys R'Us which we like, but am also wondering if there is another place I should be looking. It's Magical in Harbour City didn't have anything.

    Has anyone seen these around? I feel like the tables are much more common in Europe and in the US than here....

    Thanks!

    We have a train table that needs a new home. Will send you a picture if you're interested. We built ours. If you want a new one, check Wise Kids and Stepping Stones.

    We built it ourselves. Bought the instructions from Ebay. Got the wood shop, to cut the wood in exactly the right dimensions, and we nailed it together and painted it. It was a 2- weekend project. Will take a photo tomorrow and PM you.

    It looks similar to this

    Carang, Sorry no longer have the instructions. I think we bought it for approx US$10, and it cost less than $1000 to build. I have to admit it was a fun project.
