    Has anyone taken a Playmobil 0-4-0 or 2-4-0 Locomotive and modified it into a different looking locomotive?

    I haven't, but what would youlike to turn it into? I have a old Aristocraft Alco FA-1 that I am going to turn into "Diesel 10" from the Thomas the Tank Engine sires for my 3 year old son. I am giving him his own layoput this year, with my old Lionel G gauge starter set. His layout measures about 30ft.x 15ft., and I think that Diesle 10 would look pretty cool terrorizing the little 0-4-0 from my starter set.
    Lets see some of your ideas,

    I use a couple Playmobil items. First the #7107 Zoo Fence makes a great fence around the power transformer for my Live Electric locomotives...


    Then I use the #4391 Bumper Stop for my standard gauge locomotives, like Gerry (GER), Thomas's friend...

    I've only noticed these locomotives in the last few years. I was just wondering if anyone had taken one of them and maybe added a tender to the 0-4-0 or done things to either one of them to change their overall appearance. Maybe a new paint job?

    Customized Locomotive ... !

    Hello all,

    Here are some pictures that I found of a customized Playmobil locomotive, while visiting a website that I frequent ( I have contacted the owner of the locomotive, and have been given permission to post.

    The Playmobil locomotive that was used customized:

    My original LGB battery starter set came with a few play mobile figures. However my LGB/Playmobil western engine and cars were smashed to peaces before I could do anything fun like Matt did up their ^.

    All that I have left of my Playmobil stuff now is some LGB track in blue boxes. Lol.
