Colorwork. How would you do this?
I'm attempting to knit a sweater that has a multi-colored train along the bottom.

The pattern is here:

but you have to download it to see it. (It's the Engine #9 pullover)

My first attempt went very badly.

I was trying to carry ALL the colors across the work, back and forth because so many of the colors repeat in the different cars of the train.
The back of the abandoned sweater was a jumbled mess. :(

So I've figured out that I need to make bobbins for each car of the train. That would be the easiest way, right?

And then I'd just have to carry the MC along, back and forth?

Is that right or is there an easier way I haven't seen?

Thank you!
