Isn't it cute?!  He's just a little truck made from Lorna Doone cookies.
Each truck takes 16 Lorna Doone's, 4 round cookies, frosting, and anything else you like.  Start with one cookie for the front, then four along each side.  Put four Lorna Doone's inside to line the "cab" and support the hood and top sections.  Put the wheels in place, and then decorate to your hearts desire.
This same idea can be converted into a train by just leaving off the front section and adding box cars to the back.   
Make sure your frosting is good and strong, here's one simple recipe:
3 egg whites, room temp.
1 lb. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
-Combine all ingredients and mix for 7-10 minutes.
Toot.  toot.  c'ya.
