MOC: T44 freight locomotive
Posted 28 January 2010 - 11:13 PM
This T44 was built in 123 units, and is the most common diesel-electric freight locomotive in Sweden.
Besides from hauling goods between our mayor cities, it's also often used as a shunter locomotive on goods terminals.
Some units were even exported to Norway and Israel (!).
The classic colour scheme for Swedish state railways version of T44 is orange base and dark blue top,
which is quite good colours to copy in Lego (since both colours are relatively easy to find...).
Windscreen is the normal 2 x 6 x 2 with special decals that I made.
T44 on pictures is operated by Green cargo company.
Hope you like it.
Comments welcome as ususal.
Here together with original engine...
And here with a RC4 electric locomotive in the background.
Same as above but without original locomotive.

Since I grew up and still lives quite near the main line ("Stambanan") in nothern of Sweden I've seen that engine pass by countless times. So for me this is a real classic. To bad they've seem to have been demoted to "just" be shunter locomotives around here theese days. Haven't seen one pass by here for years now.

the surface of this freight locomotive looks very good. My first thought was, that it is a metal locomotive model (Märklin e.g.).
Especially the blue front with the slightly sloped blue 1x8 tiles an the centered 1x8 tile right behind this section is cool..
