Nothing fancy. My kids and I built a classroom to celebrate the first day of school, which was today.
Ignore the blue bits on the top (I don't have any black at the moment). And yes, I know I used a couple of Yellow plates rather than Bright Light Orange (again, I don't have any).
Overall, I'm pretty pleased with it :)
Actually, the forklift truck isn't half bad either, even if it does have a monstrosity of a moulded piece on it.
The crane was actually a very nice surprise - it moves in two directions, and is very smooth. It's quite basic, but it's a much better crane than in #7939 Cargo Train. I like it.
The locomotive is pretty decent tbh. It's nothing amazing as standard, but when it's modified as above (which is quite easy if you have the Maersk to compare it to - took me less than 2 hours) it's a decent little train. Obviously it's a City set, so it's not nearly as nice a build as the Maersk, but it's definitely better (IMHO) than the locomotive in #7939.
Basically, I bought it for the locomotive. I could see the trucks were sh*te before I bought it, and that the locomotive was too short, but I knew I could fix the loco, and I knew I'd break up the trucks for the train parts.
I'm not sure if that helps, but that's how I see it. Is it worth £140? That's for you to decide, but I paid quite a bit less than £140, so I'm quite happy with it.

and finally, tonight,
Benny's Spaceship Spaceship SPACESHIP!!
I've enjoyed all of the sets, and of course the minifigs are brilliant but what an amazing set that last one is. I totally loved the build and the finished model is so awesome.
Still to build: Research Institute, Exo Suit, Jabbas Sail Barge, Delorean, Winter Village Market and Parisian Restaurant. But I think those will have to wait while I work on a couple of MOC projects.
Side node: I really liked Uruk-Hai with full armor. What a pity they only put two of them in the 9471 Uruk-Hai army. There are a lot of Uruk-Hai to sell now. At least, I got a decent amount of Elv archers. :)

I am terrible at photography so I just snapped a shot with my phone.
