The Reindeer Car expansion set.

While Santa's Reindeer's usual mode of travel is by air, all that flying requires a lot if energy and the reindeer like to relax on occasion.  Traveling by train offers the reindeer some much needed rest, an opportunity to see the countryside, and enjoy their favorite activity; to meet and get to know the children they will be guiding Santa to visit come December 24th.

Note: The reindeer are modeled after those in set 10245 Santa's Workshop.  But hey, now you'll have eight if you have that set.  The red nosed reindeer might have to be altered to pass licensing. The last picture is of train with all expansions.

I was very excited to see the introduction of a new holiday train for The Winter Village theme.  I only wished there were more to it. Inspired by this set, I dusted of LDD and got to work on some expansion cars and modifications. I plan on presenting the new cars here as a series, but I will upload modified cars to MOCPages once built. Since I am in the process of ordering parts, the current photos are from LDD and will be replaced/updated once I finish the physical model. Note also I plan to design some type of Winter Village Train logo for the side of the car and will be applied to physical model.

Thank you for looking and I hope you enjoyed the concept.
