The Friends Funny Flowers Train ( 7-8 wide 4,5 volt )
This train does not need coals, this train needs flowers!
The train is motorized by a 4.5 V trainmotor.
Necessary tools are aboard.
The battery wagon is covered with Clickets photoframes.
I also used some Paradisa and Belville parts.
Two identical passenger wagons with a firefly that lightens the wagons (Yes – I know it is a ladybug – but just imagine….)
And finally a special wagon for the animals.
Why did I build this train?
After launching the Friends series, my 12 year old daughter was very enthusiastic.
For that reason I wanted to build a special Friends train for her, because of she rarely had a profit of mom’s hobby (instead of her younger brothers who are also train fanatics like me)
I started to collect some Friends sets who I needed for the train that was in my imagination.
Then it has to wait - there was another running project which I wanted to finish first, before start building this Friends train.
Unfortunately my daughter announced two weeks ago that she didn’t want her Lego anymore (except a few things!) – her dark age has started.
Therefore I changed my work in progress, and I started immediately building this train – hopefully if my daughter would like it a bit – maybe there is still a little bit of liquid Lego in her veins?
During the building process she was very helpfully with sorting bricks and giving good advice .
And although she won’t play with this train, she liked building the Friends sets! (before I broke them down for using the parts).
Because of I remembered I read once about a Friends contest – here is my entry!
Building this train was not for nothing…
I hope you all like this train!
