I loved reading The Boxcar Children so much that I once created a shoebox diorama version of my own boxcar, chock full of pine-needle beds and a swimming hole outside the car.  Unfortunately the diorama did not withstand the test of time.

Fortunately, however, this little gem has. Last fall we came across this photo of a Bloomington, Indiana classroom’s real-life interpretation of Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny’s boxcar home.

So we are wondering, do you have any boxcar photos??  We would love to see all the dioramas, life-size boxcars, every and any interpretation, large or small.  Send them to us at or link them to our Boxcar Children Facebook page.
