Martin Rapier’s The Games We Play blog armoured train. 

Martin Rapier on his The Games We Play blog has done a fabulous conversion job on the good old train in a tin gift set, converting it into a sinister armoured train, useful for many scenarios

Cheaper than N-Gauge, this is a very versatile cheap instant train set available in two sizes or sets.

which has already cropped up, rough black painted but unconverted,  in several of my scenarios last year.

The unconverted train is also perfect for the American Civil War, complete with cow catcher

Thanks, Martin Rapier, for the reminder to unTIN my Train more often.
