I have become a HUGE Craigslist fan. As I was browsing today, I came upon an incredible find.

Nolan has been obsessed with trains since he turned one. We went to a train museum for his birthday, and he has loved them since. Thomas is a pretty expensive toy to love. I saw 5 engines at Target the other day for over $40. This set came with 22 engines and 10 other cars.It also has a big carrying case for the engines.
Check out the 4 buildings that came with it! A lumberyard, 2 cranes, and the depot/station thing.Poor little Nolan cried all through dinner because he couldn't wait to get back to playing with his new trains. Of course, Ted is pretty excited too!All this was only $40! Can you believe it??? And the lady was only about 5 minutes from our house. I call this a successful day!
