This is a really fine piece created by Alan Parker a master glass blower, in Silverton, Co. Mr. Parker has not made many train engines as they are very time consuming. This train is about 7" long and 4" high. I have another with out the gold trim.

    I think it is sweet also! Thanks for your comment. When I get back to Silverton in a few weeks, I am going to check with Mr. Parker to see how many of these he may have. Last year he only made 3 and I bought two of them. My other train is glass without the gold. They are not cheap that is for sure. They would sell like crazy on eBay I believe.
