Snow artist emerges in Winthrop

Posted:

WINTHROP (KWWL) -- You have to check out this snow sculpture before it melts away.

Jeff Holt in Winthrop built a snow train in his front yard.

He said it only took him 18 hours to build the engine -- modeled after Thomas the Tank Engine -- and 10 hours to build the passenger car.

He says some neighbor kids were his inspiration.

"Some kids came down and asked if I'd build a snow fort for them," said Holt.  "And after that fell down because of the warm weather, I just got some other ideas to build a boat, a pick up truck, an NFL trophy and the Thomas the Tank Engine."

Jeff is currently working on a fifth sculpture -- an eagle over his mailbox.  He hopes to have that finished by Friday.
