Mini modification
#1
I found the following photos from a twitter account (his twitter page is https://twitter.com/PikaPikaStmWks).

According to him, he  used a adventures James chasis with several custom cuts and parts made for the interior. A Take-N-Play Emily chasis is too big so I used spare wheels!

The title made me think it had to do with Minis. This is much better, though I think Rajiv deserves his bunting, side railings, proper dome and funnel crown.


Speaking of different wheel diameters, I've seen what they did to Jack in this range, and it just looks like another case of "Do they seriously think kids are that dumb"?

The use of one diameter for all models is not as noticeable with engines (partially because they're supposed to have running boards for the most part), but this is an epic fail. Same with Kevin.

I don't want to start a new thread. So i will post it here. It is possible to remove the snow plow off engines with a pair of pliers and a bit of blunt force.

I thought all snow plows were removable/replaceable and they were only attached by the buffers?

i don't have the tender for this Henry.  so it has devalued already.  i can put the plow back in if i want to.

There are two hooks that connected to the bottom of the chassis.  I had to use a pair of plier to pull it out.

i got a wagon that is destined for scrap yard.

The damage is way too damaged for repair.  so I decided to turn it into a flatbed hehe with the help of the plier.

thank you super. 

Since I have time today, I also attempted to swap the trackmaster wheels with the old wheels. It didn't work.  i wonder how some of us were able to do it.  i also tried use the trackmaster 2 (the ones without teeth on them).  It doesn't work either.

Leyland if you take a blow dryer and hold really close (but not too close) to the areas where you snapped them off, the milky color of the stress fractures will disappear and go back to its original red like magic.
Play nice & have fun!!Smile

That's a top tip. Will try this for sure next time I have this.
