Shiro-Chan at the Farm

21 comments
Welcome to the farm!

This is a farm-themed freight train set that features the small diesel engine Shiro-chan. There are three freight cars to transport cargo from the farm to your LEGO town. These are an all-purpose gondola, a tanker car, and a wood-paneled livestock car.

The farm consists of a barn with a loft, a mini tractor with a trailer, and a raised goods platform with a crane hoist. In the barn's loft there is a spot where a minifigure can take a quick nap next to the hay. Drive the tractor and trailer to haul crates' worth of goods and supplies between the barn and the platform. The cargo platform has attachment points in the base which allow you to rearrange the ramps and staircase. The barn can also attach to the platform.

For minifigures, there are two train operators, three farmhands, and an assortment of farm animals including cows, chickens, dogs and cats.

I built this digitally via Stud.io, but I have also built Shiro-chan (the engine) in real life. Depending on how the support campaign goes, I will attempt to construct the rest of the set. Not all of the parts exist (yet) in the colors depicted however.

Thanks so much for taking some time to look at this project, and be sure to let me know your thoughts in the comments section!
