FO. Cut the thread.

Fix the wheels:

Insert toothpicks between the parts of the locomotive base. Try on the wheels, if everything is even and symmetrical, apply glue to the side, then to the toothpick. Stick on the wheel. Trim the protruding ends of the toothpick and glue a half-bead in the center of the wheel. This will prevent coming out the toothpicks. Attach the rest of the wheels in the same way.

The wheels can be simply glued or sewn on without toothpicks, but they will wrap and the locomotive will stand crooked. Toothpicks are here for stiffening.

Tow bar:

Cut off a piece of wire, mine is 5cm. Insert the wire at the back of the locomotive, between the base parts, in the center. Apply glue in the place where the wire exits, glue the thread and wrap the wire around it. Bend the wire up, the bent end is about 1 cm, cut off the excess. Glue the end of the thread and cut it too.

Lay the Christmas tree on the platform and tie it crosswise with a string, securing it at the corners.

Lollipop cane: (white and red colors yarn)

Take a white thread and crochet in the same ring: 1sc, 1hdc, 2dc. Tighten the ring.

Continue work with white thread, in back of the loops green, 2dc in each loop. Having crocheted all the loops,  put off the white thread and crochet in green along the white loops, also 2dc in each loop. Thus, alternate crocheting with one or another color, until get a spiral of the desired diameter. In the example are : green 8 times of 2dc in each loop,  white 22 times 2dc in each loop.

Having crocheted the required number of stitches in green, finish the row like this: 2hdc, 2sc, 2slst.

Do not cut the thread yet!

Having crocheted the required number of stitches in white, finish the row like this: 2hdc, 2sc, pick up the left green thread on the hook and crochet 1slst. Tighten the green loop well and crochet another 1slst.

Fasten and cut both threads.

Crochet the second part. Cut out two cardboard circles to size.

Wrap the white thread on a stick of about 5 cm and fix it with glue.

Crochet one part in dark green with sc in the back loop only. Cut the thread, leaving a tail for sewing. Sew the parts together, grabbing the front loop for the first part, and the back loop for the second part. Place the cardboard bases inside, adding a little filler between them.

After sewing 4-5 loops, glue the stick. Cover the end with glue and insert between the cardboards at the beginning of stitching.
