I can see it in my photos......all I did was cut a 9x13 in half lengthwise I think and cut one of the halves into thirds and stacked them up on top of the one half and then added some fudge striped cookies for the round part of the engine and then some vanilla wafers for the parts on the side........I'll post a pic from someone else that shows a halfway through's what helped me when I made mine....the box cars were just cakes baked in a bread pan and cut to the sizes I wanted.

I'll post a pic of my cake too all finished so you can see

the unfinished one is kjb's
