We all know how excellent trains are.*

Eric Sorensen has hacked together a trigger for a toy train set, hooked up to the welcome mat of his house. It’s a fun idea, but I can’t understand why he kept the actual train way over in the corner. I would love to see the train pop out through an opening with a little “Welcome” sign on it, trundle along in font of the visitor, only to disappear again back into the house.

* I can’t have been the only kid to have been impressed by toy stores with model trains snaking around overhead.
