Wooden Toy Collectors Young and Old Will Love the Train Sets from Whittle Shortline Railroad -- Perfect Gift Ideas This Holiday Season!

Disclosure: I was sent a sample from the vendor in order to write up an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

When the holidays roll around, we not only put up the Christmas tree on Thanksgiving, but we also pull out the family train that goes under the tree.  This train set was passed down through the generations and has seen better days, but it is always nice to see the trains going around the base of the tree.  But, because it is a fragile, I have since purchased wooden and plastic trains for the girls to play, as they always get excited when they see me set up the train set under the Christmas tree.

If you follow my blog, then you have read posts I have shared about our annual Day Out with Thomas train ride trips, or have seen the many Thomas and Friends DVD reviews I have done. To say that my girls love trains is an understatement.  I have lost count on how many train sets and trains they have.  I, do know, however, that my girls have a favorite new set of wooden trains thanks to the sample we were recently sent from Whittle Shortline Railroad.  

Have you heard about Whittle Shortline Railroad?  If not, here is a little background on this family-owned company, who has been in business for 20 years.  

The Whittle Shortline Railroad is wooden toy train company. They hand craft realistic toy trains that are compatible with Thomas, Brio and Chuggington train sets -- which is perfect as they are all sets my girls have.  So, I love being able to add these cute wooden trains to train sets we have and not have to worry about running out to buy another track for them use with their new Whittle Shortline Railroad train set. 

Whittle Shortline Railroad's  toy trains are modeled after real trains you would see in your neighborhood. As a part of their 20th anniversary they have released over 20 new trains beginning in August of 2016. And, this month they have started a program where they will be releasing a new train each month and expanding our offering to trains around the world! How cool is that!  I know for train lovers and toy collectors this is awesome news, and perfect timely as people put together this wish and holiday shopping lists.  


Like I said, we were recently sent the MIXED Union Pacific SET from the folks at Whittle Shortline Railroad.  The girls were so excited when they saw this beautifully hand crafted wooden toy train set. 

I told them they could use the trains with their Thomas and Chuggington train sets, and that prompted them to run upstairs and crab their tubs of train tracks and accessories and bring them downstairs to dump on floor....all just to try out their new toy trains from Whittle Shortline Railroad.  The girls had a blast setting up their trains and pulling them along the tracks. 

And, when my husband got home that night, the fun continued, and has continued since we received a couple of days ago.  

I have even caught the girls carrying their new MIXED Union Pacific train set in their pockets and Savannah fell asleep with the engine last night. :-)  So, you can say they LOVE their new MIXED Union Pacific SET from Whittle Shortline Railroad.
