 I was in Minnesota this past weekend and working with the Large Scale Wagner locomotive.  I was getting it ready to move out onto the turntable but there was this little guy was chilling on the rail.  He looked a bit sleepy to me.  I moved him before I went out with the locomotive to be sure it would be OK.  He had very sticky feet and seemed happy to sit on my arm as I took him off to the side.  I believe it's a type of tree frog, most likely a Cope's Gray Tree frog.


  1. Looks like he might have been absorbing some heat from the rails.
    (How many locomotive engineers would spot, let alone care about, a little frog next to the tracks.....)

    1. Yes, most likely. Not many would see one I am guessing. 😊
