Acc to Wikipedia:
The Sr1 is a class of electric locomotives built for VR (Finnish railways).
These 25kV locomotives were built in the Soviet Union at the Novocherkassk
Electric Locomotive Factory between 1973 and 1985. Electrical equipment for
the locomotives was supplied by the Finnish company Oy Strömberg Ab (
later part of ABB).

I built a replica in 6-wide (as usual) for the past weekends AFOL meeting in Sweden.

I haven't seen any Finnish locomotives before on eurobricks, so it's about time  :cry_happy:

Excellent!
Very detailed MOC!
One thing that bothers me is the length, is it the angle of the photographing, or it really needs few more studs in length?

It's 30studs long. I use a relative scale and compared to my other MOC locomotives it has a correct lenght.

But you are right in that sense that basically all Lego trains are too short compared to trains IRL, especially wagons.

I know I commented already, but I'm back. This is just great. I love how you have captured the detail and still kept it simple. MOC's like this make me dead keen to get into trains!

Very nice Selander.  I love European electric trains that really have  a lot of character.  Your LEGO version is very well done, especially how you infused the red bricks and created the custom VR emblem.  This deserves front-page coverage.  Excellent! :thumbup:

What a wonderful loc :] Great job Selander! I agree with Milan that it looks a tad bit short compared to the original model, however your clarification on that is right. Blowing it to its actual proportions would probably make it look bad in LEGO world. So I think it's perfect the way it is!

I hope you heard in Fagertsta I think this is very good.

You also have two MOC's on the frontpage of Eurobricks at the same time right now!  :thumbup:  I don't think that happens very of often.

Hi Selander,
i think this new train fits perfect in LEGO train world.
I'd like to ask about the green diesel engine in the background: Could you post an image, that focusses it?

Stefan :)

A very nice build I must say. Again proof that 6wide trains can look very good  :thumbup:
I must say that you can give it a try to make it 4-6 studs longer.

Very accurate design, good job! I'd say you could loose a few studs on the top, don't you think?
