    Thanks all for the comments! Yes the smugglers are unloading goods of undisclosed origin to the local authorities of all nations because everyone loves cargo at below market pricing because it turns a bigger profit. You see they are just business men after all.

    Chances of an Emerald Night re-release?

    I think this is the main thing here... The "toy train craze" where everyone had to have a train has passed kids these days aren't into trains like we were. Maybe because today's trains became boring they all look the same no one really "has a connection" to trains any more unless it's subways, metrolinks, or trams (fill in the European equivalent). Most people that ride these don't enjoy them lol. It makes sense that tlg still offers them but not as a main stream. Superhero cartoons have replace comic books, Harry Potter has replaced the castles an knights, who didn't love playing with dinosaurs? I think the thing we AFOL's forget is they are a marketing company selling toy blocks. Yes we have a small niche in their market but the vast majority is still kids who will play with Lego's and forget about them as they grow.

    Chances of an Emerald Night re-release?

    Personally I think after 12v and 9v they tried to get away from the "special use parts" and more toward parts that can build any type of model/design

    Chances of an Emerald Night re-release?

    I can speak from personal experience.... The EN while pretty is the worst running train I've ever come across. I bought it late last year from a friend. It ran so horrible it became a shelf display. Then I decided I was going to make it run. I've reworked the chassis reworked the trucks reworked the boiler/motor configuration. Redesigned the tender. Then reworked all of it again when I finally ran it at a show. The set it's just not a good stock set but a great looking set... I would rather they develop a great new steam engine on thepu platform than re-release the EN

    Pub file?

    @crutchlow Created an amazing Pub... They offered the LDD file in THIS thread however it's no longer there for download. Did anyone that's still here happen to download it that would be OK with sharing it via PM?
  17. Our pair of smugglers has made yet another stop in the Brick Sea's at an undisclosed island. These local Authoritarian Types had no qualms about where this cargos origins lay just saw profits in discounted product.

    [MOC]Horse Drawn Fire Engine

    So I'm not sure if this fits most of y'alls idea of Town... But it does mine lol. So I build a burnt cottage and wanted to have a fire engine to go with it. However a modern engine just wouldn't do as it would look out of place with my horse drawn carriages. I have always loved the old steam pumpers ever since I saw them as a kid. So I took to recreating. This isn't based off a specific model... More loosely based what I thought looked good in Lego. This has few fragile connections so it's not a playable moc but it's purpose will be to display in a layout once built so it should be OK. Also I intent to use the newer horses to look like they are running. Comments and criticism welcomed thanks for viewing!
