I wasn't prepared for the outpouring of grief and protestations which followed me posting this image after the Brickster raised the subject of flat bed train wagons:

However, that was only the beginning of the story...

So the loco was hauled away and taken to some sidings next to an orchard:

Luckily, the scrap metal dealers had hundreds of coal trucks to cut up first, so they forgot about poor old 7727. And time passed:

One pleasant sunny day, Mr Richman and his wife are out for a stroll and stumble across the sidings:

Now Mr Richman has always wanted an old steam engine, so he persuades his wife to let him buy it:

He gives the owner of the sidings 30 golden quid. The locomotive is his!

Very nice. I like the grass on the loco.  :thumbup:

The 7750, I hope you can remove that 'sold' easily.  :sceptic:

It's multifunctionomical.

Great story.  You should make an alternate ending of its scrapping, too!

You want me to depict this forlorn little locomotive being sliced up by maniacs wielding blow-torches?
Phew, I'm not sure I can bring myself to do that.  :sceptic:

AJW: I am so envious in regard to your collection of these wonderful 12V locomotives. :wub:   I thought I saw everything with your last set of 12V trains, but now I see what looks like a modified 7750 in the picture.  Truly fantastic!  I want so bad to own some of these classic sets, and truly regret not collecting trains when I was a young chap.  

I like your story, but you should perhaps add a western outlaw or mystery host purchasing that scrap engine. :wink:  What would an engine like that cost?  I see that it could use some windows. :laugh:

Seriously though, great scene.  I thank you for being active on the T&T forum and sharing these classic trains on EB.  Now I'm convinced that Lego should bring back another classic train as a Legend.
