I did it like that as most small UK/european shunters (like Hunsletts, Barclays, etc.) have sloping cabs; but more importantly, have the door on the sloping bit:

I'm currently waiting on an order from bricklink which features doors, windows and a few other spare parts... let's hope royal mail haven't lost it (or some sod stole it for himself...)

Why are there only 2 sets of wheels? Shouldn't there be 3 sets? Try it out and see what you think, I reckon it would look better.

Your idea is good, the model chosen for your moc..... a challenge. Only this moc, I don't know what I should think of it. It looks a bit cheap and simple............ It needs more work and building to impress, I guess.

Good entry. It looks however really short compared to the original you also posted.

Looking from the side, the wheelbase just looks to short, but .... I guess not everybody has to like it.

BTW, the windows you used at the side, are they supposed to be like this, or are they a bit old and therefore worn. Maybe some clear windows would freshen things up. The idea you had worked out fine BTW.

There are only 2 sets of wheels becuase the model was designed to fit over the 9V train motor - I have a LDD file (and it CAN be bought from Lego!) of the exact design which I'm quite happy to share.

Also I was limited by my parts collection. The model is a bit of a compromise but it doesn't look too bad compared with what really existed:

EDIT: you can see the 'new' engine here.
