Directors Angus Kneale and Ben Smith of The Mill NY teamed on this spot out of agency RP3 in Bethesda, MD, which opens on a boy playing with his train set. His dad comes into his room and tells him it's time for bed. But once the lights are out, the toys in the room come to life and proceed to build a city, the catalyst being the Norfolk Southern toy train.
