Hi everybody

This is my latest creation, a special Christmas edition of my MOC modular building, "Brick Square Post Office". Hope you like it. :classic:

Twas the night before Christmas...

... and all the kids at Brick Square were getting excited, building snowmen and putting up the Christmas tree.

The children had been busy writing their lists for Santa.

They handed their letters to the postman, who was loading up his van ready for the last mail run of the day.

He set off in to the snowy night with his precious cargo, but by now the snow was falling thickly.

Then there was trouble! The post van hit a snow drift much bigger than usual.

Stranded in the snow, the quick thinking Postman grabbed his phone and telephoned ahead.

Meanwhile back at Brick Square everything was silent and the children were feeling anxious. It was getting late and the Postman should have returned by now.

Just then a friendly whistle sounded in the distance and the air was suddenly filled with the sweet smell of steam

It was Santa. He had ditched his reindeer and sleigh and instead opted for good old fashioned steam power, courtesy of The Old Workhorse Traction Engine.

Don’t forget The Old Workhorse is on LEGO Ideas. https://lego.build/2vRfVGL Please spare a couple of minutes to give it your support if you’d like to see it made as a real LEGO set.

 

Anyway, shameless self-promotion out of the way, lets continue the story ... :wink:

The Old Workhorse arrived at Brick Square carrying Santa himself and all the presents for the children.

And just in case you wondered what happened to the Postman. Don’t worry, he made it back home in time for Christmas Day!

THE END!

 

I hope that you've enjoyed reading this and looking at the pictures. :classic:

I'd like to take this opportunity to wish everyone on Eurobricks a very happy Christmas, and all the best for 2019.

Great story, and the two MOCs work really well together...the old-fashioned mail van and traction engine look like they could be from the same English village.

Merry Christmas!

Haha, I definitely didn't expect to see something like this! Really enjoyed the childish story which brought back some good memories and of course both of the builds and the incredible editing!

                                                   Merry Christmas!

:iamded_lol: Super fun version of both your builds and storyline. Merry chirstmas!

Thanks a lot guys. Because this is not strictly a new moc, the storyline was just my way of presenting the model in a different way to usual. Glad you like it and MERRY CHRISTMAS.

By the way I have now begun work on a brand new modular building. It is early stages though so will be a few weeks till it's finished.

Like already said ... great story and great builds. Like the creations and also the story. Sadly the posttruck (like the design, bit '50, ';60's style?) had an accident but fortunely the 'workhorse' came to rescue.

Yes the whole model is set in the 1950's. The post truck is loosely based on a British Morris J type, like the example below.
