Continuing to build my Christmas display ready for future Christmases so it can just be be un-boxed, laid out and connected together without taking up the building time I usually lose over the festive period due to putting it up and taking it down every year.
This has also come with a realisation why sets in general do not come with a lot of scenery or on large baseplates. I have never built anything that has used so many bricks, just to get a basic structure on a 32x32 plate and so far I have used 6 of them just for the 2 longest sides of the coffee table that they will go round.
It has made the weekends remarkably therapeutic though, as sitting down, surrounded by loads of baggies filled with Lego and not knowing what's going to end up coming out of them is strangely satisfying. :)
I am not into trains in anyway shape or form due to being force fed them at a very young age by a train enthusiastic father. The only upshot from this past was that we used to spend a lot of time visiting the Bluebell railway which at the time had sheds filled with trains in various states of repair, one of which was a train called 'Blackmoor Vale'.
For whatever reason, of all the trains I have seen over the years, I have always had a bit of a soft spot for it and was delighted when it was put back into steam after so many years of seeing it in bits. For that reason this would be my choice of train to be made into a set.
This may sound like a stupid question but have you checked that the items are not in the cart at the top right hand corner of the sellers page? (Small green box) If they are not in the store cart I cannot think why the items are not being added as even when not logged in you should be able to add items to your cart and will get notification (just under the box where you type in the number for the amount wanted) that they were successfully added to your basket or a red error notice if you have tried to put to many in the cart. (Have just tried both so I know they work).
