It was no big deal, I probably paid less than $10 total for everything (the blue wagon was free), and Xavier had sent me a bunch of parts I find more valuable.
Someone needs to rotate that 3 on the front so it's upright.

Oops !...... :wasntme:
There is always something that I don't see before I take photos
Most often is a roof incorrectly fitted :giggle:

When I saw the beautiful van for passenger luggage made by Playmofire,
I did remember that I had similar project that I had abandoned

The health crisis gave me the possibility to continue and make a second try

The doors are coming from Fire Truck
And the cabin from the red loco, of course. A damaged cabin that I tried to repair
I do not plan to paint it.
I noticed that mixte van can have different color to show difference between passengers and luggages

I still have to install red light in the rear of van.

I have often thought there was a need for a luggage van for the steam locos, but I would never have thought of your solution. It is a winner (and good use of the roller shutter from the 3880 fire engine).

The middle seat in front of the old doorway is a nice touch.
What did you use to close the doorway?
I missed that. A good idea and, as -bbbb says, a nice touch.

Thank you Gordon, I like yours a lot

Thank you All

The middle seat in front of the old doorway is a nice touch.
What did you use to close the doorway?
I have old toy garage for cars which has a kind of road
( where I take some plastic parts when needed )
and it has the kind of sidewalk below.

Its dimensions were exactly the same than the doorway
and I thought it could be nicer than a simple plate :happy:

If my grandchildren were more interested in trains, Playmobil would be the product of choice. I think many parents are missing the enormous play value in Playmobil.
