Barge and Loading Port

This Lego barge and loading port comes with an easily accessible driver section, 5 connecting crates and an end piece, a crane to lift the boxes, and a floating ship base. It also comes with:

-2 8M cross axles                                                 

-2 16M cross axles

-2 32M cross axles

-2 bushes for cross axles

-4 2M cross axle extensions

These pieces are to help align the crates on both sides.

-to hold 5 crates you use a 32M, 8M, 16M, 2 2M cross axle extensions, and 1 bush for one side, same for the other.

-to hold 4 crates you use a 32M, 16M, a 2M cross axle extensions, and 1 bush each side.

-to hold 3 crates you use a 32M and 1 bush each side.

-to hold 2 crates you use a 8M, 16M, a 2M cross axle extensions, and 1 bush each side.

You do not need any axles for a single crate. For a better understanding of this, look at the pictures above.

This is a unique set, I was looking through the Lego sets and even though there was a technic set that rebuilds into a barge this is only one of two barges. It is targeted towards younger ages, is an easy build and is a very playable set which really varies from the other set. This set is 652 pieces. Some other features include 14 boxes (2 pieces each; lid and bottom) and 4 16*16 road baseplates.
