Railroad Crossing Standing Bank


All aboard the savings train with the Standing Railroad Bank. Modeled after a railroad crossing caution signal, this bank stands almost 54 inches tall which should give kids (or train-loving adults!) plenty of room to hold enough coins to buy a railroad… or at least a train ticket or two.

The bank not only saves coins, it also lights up with flashing red lights. Is that the sound of a coin clinking at the bottom of the savings tube? Nope! That’s the sound of a passing train- this bank recreates train sounds too. Put this next to your model railroad setup as a donation box (so you can buy more model trains?) or gift it to the thrifty train loving kid on your list.
