|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
A Custom Trolley
One of things I really enjoy about the Neighborhood Archive is hearing from readers who have been influenced in various ways by Fred Rogers timeless message. I was recently contacted by Joseph Smith, an Archive reader with an interest in movie props and memorabilia. With an appreciation for Mister Rogers and a creative talent, Joseph built his own replica of the Neighborhood Trolley. Here is how he describes his creation:
So as you may have deduced from his description, this is a fully operable Trolley replica running on track across a room in Joseph's house!
Check out these amazing pictures of Joseph's Trolley throughout its creation...
And the amazing finished product...
At the end of one of his emails to me, Joseph wrote: "P.S. What's next? Maybe Daniel's Clock would look good sitting in my dining room..."
I think he may have been joking...but part of me hopes not.
Thanks for sharing your amazing talent, Joseph!
