Container Terminal
Well, the Maersk Train needed a home...
About this creation
...so I built this little terminal on four big baseplates, including a crane bridge, a tool shed, a building with repair shop, office and control room, as well as two simple long container cars and an old short one (not much to build there) and some containers.

If MOCpages still haven't recovered from their image disk problems, please see the photos here on flickr!



(maybe I should've put something in front of those books in the background...)





The crane's spreader is probably built more complicated than necessary, but my supply of new style Technic parts is limited (well, except for a few big sets that I don't want to take apart). It grabs the containers using some rubber bands which works surprisingly well...





And it can rotate:







Removing the rolling stock to show more of the tracks and ballast – you know, this is an old place that hasn't been used for the recent past and hasn't received proper maintenance. Now that, as my story goes, Maersk has purchased it, it gets refurbished – the building and the crane are already done, the ground is almost cleaned, but the shed's roof still needs some fixing, and the track maintenance set, erm, crew hasn't been released, erm, arrived yet.



(Pallet design shamelessly, erm, inspired by LT12V's station.)



Some work that's being done: The corner of the crane's buffer stop needs to be chopped off to allow the new low-loading Maersk wagons to pass:



He likes his job...



And the ground is almost cleaned:



That blue Classic Space container, by the way, was my entry in the raffle on the Eurobricks Forums where I won three additional Maersk workers. And the little excavator is from the construction site set, I just replaced its tracks with wheels.



Now on to the main building:





The paint job is almost done, this is the last corner (the talks about a painter on the upcoming modular Pet Shop inspired a good way to do with fewer Maersk blue bricks...)



The interior: Control room and office on the upper floor:



Repair shop in the lower floor:





The tool shed (with lavatory):



That's it, gotta get back to work!

Thanks, everyone!
Quoting cyberfrank 2010 do they have a color code?
Well, the idea is that those with blue hard hats are the regular container workers, and those from other companies doing the refurbishing work (thus only temporarily on site) have red hard hats.

Very nicely done and detailed. The flowers on the unused track are a nice touch!

This is one of the best container terminal I know - when I look from outside. With all the interior, it is the best! My favorite detail is the top stone above the door. Great build!

I would buy this as a set if there was no ballasting (I'm not a fan of it to be honest) and more Maersk Blue pieces. I love the old-style rails for the crane to move on. It's too bad you don't have those in Maersk Blue, isn't it?

Brilliant! I loved the old container crane set from '95, and this is like its bigger, better, brother. The detailing (like the bricks around the door and windows, the interiors of the buildings etc) is excptional. A wonderful build. 5/5
