My son who is 11 now loves this little game we play. I have a big oval of track in the finished attic room, oval is about 25x16 or so. I set at on end and my son goes to the other end. I load lincoln logs on to the train and ship them to him at the other end. He tells me what he needs and I fill the order. We can play like this for hours. You could do this this legos or any kind of building toy, lincoln logs are simple and a flat load of logs being pulled by a steam engine look real nice.
Lionel has a set now with lincoln logs
