He does love his trains....

After an hour of hysterical crying (and some orajel, reciting Goodnight Moon, and singing Twinkle, Twinkle - all to no avail), I tried singing the "Thomas and Friends" song (in a nice, slow, soothing way). That's what finally did it! He stopped crying. Laid his head down and finally calmed down. He went in his crib and kept quiet and finally gave in to sleep. I must have sung that song 20 or 30 times! (Just the first two verses - 'cuz that's all I know - but still!)

"They're two they're four they're six they're eight
Shunting trucks and hauling freight
red and green and brown and blue
they're the really useful crew
All with different roles to play
'Round Tidmouth sheds or far away,
Down the hills and round the bends
Thomas and his friends"
