Fingerprint Freight Train
One of our favorite train books is "Freight Train" by Donald Crews. It's really neat to see all the different types of cars and different colors. The story is very short, but still fun to read with the little ones.
This thumbprint/fingerprint activity from Craftoart.com is inspired by the book and is oh so cute! I love these types of crafts that can become keepsakes!

|Train with Tracks from Parents.com|
For a more three dimensional craft this adorable train and track craft from Parents.com should be tons of fun! Who knew you could make such a cute train with a few wooden blocks, an empty spool, and wagon wheel pasta! I think at the very least we will be making some craft stick train tracks!
Hand/Arm Tracing Train Craft

And lastly here's a fun craft where your child can trace their entire arm and hand and turn it into a train!
Since we are doing a dinosaur unit right now, we're going to get out our Dinosaur Train talking dinosaurs and have come fun! There are also some great games and videos over at the PBS kids website for Dinosaur Train to check out!
