I love trains. When Mum said we can't get on the train because it's lockdown, I'm autistic so it felt like the end of the world. I begged her to get some cardboard so I could make my own to get on. This is my Gatwick Express for Lockdown. I added sound effects on them for the door buttons, engine and announcements so they're more real. Since then I've made a Southern Rail train and I'm building a Thameslink. I feel happy everyday now playing with them in my garden.
