The Whittle Shortline Railroad Review

The Whittle Shortline Railroad Review




For me, Christmas and trains go hand in hand. Every Christmas my parents would take us to the Electric Company downtown to see the huge train set they had on display. It was beautiful! We would watch the trains as they traveled through the Christmas villages. My father and brother loved trains. They even had a big one set up in our basement and they would spend hours working on it.

So when I was offered the chance to review the train set from Whittle Shortline Railroad I said yes right away because I knew it would bring back the memories of all those Christmas pasts and of my dad and brother working on their train set.

The Whittle Shortline Railroad is a 20 year old American and family owned company, that handcrafts wooden toy trains which are compatible with major wooden railways like Thomas, Brio, and Chuggington.  The trains are modeled after real North American trains that you would see in your neighborhood. The Freight trains include Burlington Northern, CSX, Canadian National, Norfolk Southern, Santa Fe and Union Pacific among others. As a part of their 20th anniversary, they released over 20 new trains in August of 2016. In December 2016 they will begin a program of releasing a new train each month and expanding their offering to trains around the world!

For the review, I was sent the Mixed Santa Fe Warbonnet set includes a Santa Fe Warbonnet Engine, Santa Fe Caboose and 3 freight cars chosen by The Whittle Shortline Railroad! Aren't they adorable!



What makes the Whittle Shortline Railroad trains so special? It's that each of the train pieces are wooden. They are hand crafted and painted in bright colors. The wheels are completely moveable and each piece has a magnetic on the front and back to connect the pieces.  Look at the detail! I love that this train set is going to last for a very long time!
