LEGO System / Trains
Two train cars. One with a heavy duty crane, the other a flat-bed car with a green work container and a small track car.
I have some ideas for good use of the special windshield, while the rest are useful, but not desperately wanted pieces.
The crane car is very good and uses just the right amount of elements while the second car with the work container is limited like most other current models.
It didn't just make me start playing with it like #6263 (see my last review), but there are certainly possibilities in the set.
A nice set, but I needs to be put together with some other sets. It comes with some useful 'tools', but without something to work on. I'll have to dig out the rest of my trains to really appreciate the set.
The crane has a good solid feeling. They are using just the right amount of bricks for it.
The crane feels like it isn't mounted good enough.
I you have some track and an engine, it's not a bad buy. The catalog shows the crane clearing the track after an accident, which points to the need for something to let it work with.

Favorite Theme: My own creations
I collect bricks, build out of those I have, and always wish for more bricks Usually the models get mixed up in the rest of the collection within days.
Have a look at my LEGO on the Web at "http://lego.sparre-andersen.dk/".
