==MISSING PARTS==

Aside from the '317' decal/sticker, the build is 100% accurate

From 2001 to 2004, Lego had been producing a very interesting collection called "My Own Train" (basically, an attempt to appeal to model train collectors outside the world of Lego). The idea was to provide more customization and flexibility—the instructions for the 'Locomotive Kit' and this set no. 3742 'Tender' came with just core parts; the rest of the pieces were in 'extension' polybags of different colors: blue, green, black, brown, and dark grey. The tender pairs both with Large and Small Locomotives.

I like "My Own Train" design a lot, every model so far. Just something so appealing about them: elegant, clean look, well-thought builds with only standard parts. They still fundamentally match any other Lego train, but yet so different and original! While Lego City and related series were arguably becoming more and more about "design" and less about the "build" in the 2000s, with a decal or one-off mold for any unusual shape (instead of an assembly of simple bricks).
