MOC: Dwarf Train
Posted 14 August 2009 - 12:42 PM
I really like the different theme month that we have had here on EuroBricks so far. Train month seems to be just as good (if not better) that the rest of them. But how was I supposed to participate in this I asked myself when the news was announced? I don't own any train related LEGO and although I really admire all the great train MOCs I've seen here on EB and elsewhere, I don't have enough interest in it to start buying (often very expensive) train sets to build with.
But then it struck me, I do have something that looks a little train related, the mining carts from 7036 Dwarves' Mine. And the building began...
Here it is, the Dwarf Train with train station:
Here we have the station by itself. The passengers are waiting for the train to arrive. There's a noble lady and the dwarf king. The crates to the right is filled with precious gems that are to be delivered to the big castle. On the balcony there is a dwarf watch keeper.
And here we have the train by itself. A small but strong engine that pulls the train through the mountains. The dwarf engineer has to keep his beard short to make sure it doesn't hinder him in his work.
Here you might see that the wheels on the engine doesn't touch the ground. This, however isn't a problem when the train is on the tracks.
Unfortunately I only had enough wheels to build the steam engine and one passenger car. I would have loved to built a whole train with lots of different cars but that how LEGO works. You never have enough bricks

I hope it's OK that I posted this creation in the Train Tech forum. I know it's more Castle themed but it was meant to be a part of the train month so I figured this was the place. Mods and Admins, feel free to move it if you disagree
Thank you for watching!

Is the train not to small for the noble Lady? Or made the Dwarves them so, that Men also can take the train?
