Lego Novice

28 June 2015.  Dan gave me a Lego kit as a gift, a three unit train with over 1000 pieces.  I was afraid to try it but once I got going I couldn’t stop.  In the past two days I finished the first unit.  I was very impressed by the kit: the quality and the details.  

5 July 2015.  I finished the other two units.  I couldn’t restrain myself from working on them.  There are cool things inside the units that aren’t that obvious from the outside.  Unfortunately there was a train wreck.  As I was attaching the third unit I pushed the front unit too far and it fell off the table and broke into a hundred pieces.  A real rookie mistake  :-(

17 August 2015.  After I messed up by dropping the locomotive I sent the pieces to Dan. He took it all apart and rebuilt it from scratch in one evening. The three units are now united again.
