Another common train table pick-me-up is to simply paint the surface and/or other parts with chalkboard paint.  This allows kids to use it as a drawing station or a train table where they draw their own scenery, signs etc.  Here is an example of a finished table we found on Pinterest complete with chalk pockets, as well as a few suggested chalkboard paints you can purchase from
