Every car in that train has good custom work; the custom western roofs are great. I like the tender and the extra wheels under the locomotive, but the locomotive looks like it needs stickers. It's nice to give new life to old suffering things.

Thanks to gravity I found this caboose on the floor yesterday.

It departed from the open shelf and arrived in a piecemeal fashion:

Its first life was amended by its original owner after a similar break above the coffee pot:

I gave it a 2nd life with reinforcement and new paint:

But now it's 2nd life received amendment:

The reinforcement previously added has paid off and protected from re-breakage of the wall during its most recent autumn fall. Some of these wagons are more brittle than others, and I wonder if it's because the original owner stored the plastic in a non-climate controlled environment.

Excellent photos, Xav, and those green coaches etc. look great. I love the amount of detail in the interior scene.

I've said it before but I do believe many parents don't or never saw the value in Playmobil.
