SL7 Steamlined Steam Locomotive

SL7 Steamlined Steam Locomotive is a Locomotive in China to carry Express"Aisa"

The Express is run in 134km/h and luxurious in that time in whole Aisa Railway

The locomotive is made by Dalian Locomotive and Rolling Stock Co in 1934

(Nowadays,this Company is making CHR High speed trainset in China)

In the whole world,it just left SL7 751 & 757

I added Power Functionin the locomotive,so I can play it and look on it.

Let see the real locomotive first↓

THIS IS SUPERB!!!!!

The locomotive you modeled it after is pretty cool itself, I had never seen an engine like that all these streamlined lines and cool features must have been a royal pain to do!!!

Your model is dead on as far as accuracy, it would be super cool to build the very first one in your post, the blue one!!!

I'm a conformist!, this is awesome!!!!

That's a beautiful model of a beautiful locomotive-- so good I wish Lego would release it. Thanks for sharing it and for all the great pictures! :thumbup:

This is a really really nice model!

I saw an exhibition about Streamliners in the UK a week or two ago and I have to say, although they do look impressive and quite beautiful, they do seem lack a certain charm that comes with traditional steam. That said, your build is fantastic and its great the way you've incorporated the motor and lights into it. ^^ I'm also impressed with the time you took to solve the little problems (Or big depending on how you look at it!) related to the turning of the locomotive.

Welcome to Eurobricks he16767,

Thats a very nice locomotive, I particularly enjoyed the photos showing how you made the pistons and the tender skirt clear the wheels around corners. Your model looks very like the prototype, you can be very proud of your work.

Very nice model!

I like how there are very few visible studs, it looks very slick.

Well done!

Congratulations on making a fantastic looking steamer! I especially like the front. Looking at the side profile comparison with the prototype, the drivers look a bit too small on your model. If you have the money (and of course the time), you might want to try using the XL drivers from Big Ben Bricks. That, combined with taking a few plates off the bottom of the boiler would make this model look even more accurate.

Keep up the good work!
