No doubt about it, electric trains are cool. They are expensive though. And you could get called “a nerd.” But really, those people are just not cool, so there.
Follow the simple 4 step instructable to make “The Simpliest Electric Train“. Now, watch the video of it in action. It’s quite cool. Except the jumps, that part sucks, don’t build this expecting to get some sick jumps. You’ll be dissapointed.
If your kid, or brother, or friend wants a Train for Christmas. A. Get them one, (if they’ve been a good child that is). B) If they like trains, then they’re probably interested in science. Why not spend $20 and make this with them. It will be cool and get them interested in science.
