Here is my revamped version of 60278 (the cancelled CITY set called "Crook's Hideout Raid"), modified for use by my WXYZ railroad's Maintenance Of Way (MOW) department, instead of the crooks. Features an oil heater upstairs, railroad track with garage door, skylight on the removable roof, and water tower. The MOW department also owns a excavator, dump truck, drilling vehicle, and a bucket truck, alongside the 1950's vintage rail-mobile for inspection work of the track after the job is done. The front of the facility. Emmett Brickowski runs the facility and it's seven man crew like a well-oiled machine, helping to repair breakdowns in infrastructure / clean up derailments safely, securely, and in a timely manner. ..oh yeah, there is a claw crane on the front lot of the building, inspired by 7596 (Trash Compacter Escape) The back wall of the building. The front office with the break room is on the lower level. The second floor comes off to access this room. The inside, with the upper roof removed. Emmet's office is on the second floor. These vehicles make sure the WXYZ railroad is running smoothly. The bucket truck is from 3179 (Repair truck), dump truck is from set 7789 (Lotso's dump truck), drill vehicle from 7936 (level crossing), and the front end -loader from set 7630 (front end-loader). The black rail mobile is inspired by this fairly recent @hachiroku's build here and by @Cale's pictures of Ma & Pa RR inspection car 101 as seen here. The vehicle rolls quite well on the track with no problems in stock switches or standard R40 curves. The rear of each vehicles has a identification plate designating which railroads owns it. The rail mobile is privately owned by Emmett Brickowski (thus the "EB" part of the nameplate) and is labeled as such. Comments, questions, and complaints welcome! EDITED 6/8/21: added real life photos, plus the text has been reworked a lot.
Hello everybody! Over in the Lego City 2021 Rumours, information and discussion topic it was reported that the great 60278 Crook's Hideout Raid set was cancelled by Lego. I'm very disappointed about that fact since we finally could have gotten a decent sized crook's hideout plus two more different police vehicles. (The giant brick-built dynamite could easilty have taken off.) I thought it would be the best to open a topic where everybody signs in who wants and would buy this set - and after that beg an admin for sending it to TLG (like we did back in back in 2008 for 4999 - which was in the end very successful). So please leave a comment here in order to let this brilliant set (or a similar one) become real for us! PS: @Crazydance, could you please arrange a general petition in the web (like the successful one back in 2008)? That would be great!
