Does such a thing even exist? I know Lionel did one of these as well, but I live right near the HQ and yard for Norfolk Southern's Pocahontas Division, and they do not have such a thing--I guess if the locomotive needs cleaning before they work on it, they pressure wash/steam jenny it off. The play value for kids, though looks like it's pretty good.

Of course they exist, how else can you get bird poop off? :)

Such a silly set that I wish LEGO would make. However it would probably need to include a criminal somehow in made today.

This was such an odd, interesting little set.

But I love that it comes with a carriage. That's play value, right there.

Awesome. This would be great for spaceships.

I love that they used to make such very specific sets - we never got into the whole Trains area of Lego in our house because we already had a Hornby train set, but I love all the stuff they had.

This was one of the strangest sets I've ever seen.

As one of the 831 members who owns this, I will say I bought this solely for the train car and the buffer stop.

So weird yet cute at the same time. I suppose that's what LEGO's best at.
