Corbin's been working for the railroad

Our neighbor recently took a couple of short trips and thought it would be a good idea for someone to get her mail and newspaper while she was away.  Luckily for Corbin, she thought he was just the man for the job.  Lucky because this was a paying gig.

So after earning a small fortune (in child dollars) he used that money to purchase a much loved Lego style train from the California Railroad Museum.  And when I say Lego style, I mean Lego bricks without the Lego branding.  All of the pieces are available from Lego so much so that I could probably build a replica from pieces we already own.

Based on his satisfaction, I looked online for more figuring I could get a better price online than at the gift shop but after shipping the price is about the same.  In fact, online is slightly more but not everyone lives near the Train Museum.

    A knock of Lego set?! Do you think it is made by Lego just no branding? 

    He looks happy though and the train is pretty cool… don't ruin it for him.

    A lesson, a reward, and a smile well earned. You don't get something for nothing. Great job Corbin!

    Do you have to buy them in the back of a chinese food store like Prada bags?

    +Matt M I think it is unbranded lego parts.  Even the train wheels are merely Lego wheels without the rubber.  I will build one out of my parts and you'll see (colors may vary)

    Cool. I am just wondering if I should report this to Lego. :)

    Regardless if it's Lego or not.
    Corbin looks very happy with his earnings.

    Cool!  My husband didn't get my recent Lego purchase, someone was remiss in his childhood and he was never provided with them. Too many small parts I imagine.  Anyway, he asks me (of my new Monster Hunters purchases) what are these and are they gonna stay in the living room?  Oh hon, only as long as the crossbow you bought in Ocrober did….I threatened to put a wreath on it at Christmastime….
