Python 101 lab

Introduction

After creating Turtles to move in your previous labs, you decide to foray into the fascinating world of Thomas the Train (ctrl+click). Inspired by your wild summer craze in 2002, you would like to create your own Thomas artwork and be immortalized forever. As a first step, you have been hired to create a graphic for the Thomas the Train Show. The graphic must show a train, any of the trains, doesn’t have to be Thomas (Percy has been a little jealous over all of Thomas’s fame). You are welcome to recreate an existing graphic or create something new that is appropriate.
