Train Set Artist

My little boy loves to work with tools, take things apart and put them back together again, and work the on/off switch like it's going out of style. Yes, I'm saying that he is definitely his father's son. A little while ago, we found a train table at a second-hand store for under $30 and bought it so that Ethan could play with his trains in his own room. He loved it! He especially loves that he can build and re-build his train sets over, and over, and over again. In the past few weeks, he's gone from this:
train 2

To this:
train 3

And then to this most recent incarnation:
train 1

But don't think it's staying like that, because he already started taking it apart again. Maybe he's going to be an architect or an engineer when he grows up, and he can build me a funky house to live out my golden years in-- something with hidden passages and secret rooms would be especially cool. Now, how to guide him on to that path...
