Introduction
The idea for this vehicle began some monthes ago, as in the two harbors sets from 1991, there are two trucks but not any shunting vehicle. I've captured the emblematic shape of those vehicles, with a narrow cab. I had to innovate to keep the 4w scale and having a 3 wide cab. So I used a vintage window as a windshield, and used a 1x4x1 panel to keep the cab as small as possible. I've placed a "L" logo sticker on the truck's door as it was the mark of the Lego harbors in the 80's. The trailer is fairly generic, there is nothing very special in. The two containers has two different brands, the black one is Lego branded and uses the printed parts from LEGO-343-1 ferry set from 1968. As I don't have the set, it's a good way to use those parts. The second one is a Maersk Line one, in the same spirit as LEGO-1651-1 Maersk Harbor shunting truck and LEGO-1552-1 truck but with a reduced size to the standardized 4x8 size. The most difficult thing to find was the 1x4x3 grey window with shutters tabs. It's an expensive part, so I won't build more Maersk containers with openable doors if the price isn't reasonable.

Creation contains

This creation is composed of a shunting truck with a trailer, a worker, two containers (Lego and Maersk), a red trolley and two crates with Lego boxes and electronic components.

Scenery
The scenery is a harbor scene with the 6540-1: Pier-Police police station, a freight wagon, a crane to load the gravel in the ships and a Container Ship creation. More to find in the scenery page.
