Hello Everyone

  I would like to share some photos of a locomotive I built a few years ago originally for the Flickr Lego Trains MOC's 2-4-0 competition, since then the locomotive has gone through a number of progressive rebuilds to the state she is in today, the design is a freelanced build and is inspired by a number of designs used by a variety of German railways from around the 1880s, the main influence is from the Saxon IIIB http://www.worldrail.../Saxon/IIIb.jpg and the Wurttemberg AC http://www.worldrail...ttemberg/Ac.jpg class locomotives.

Here is the Backstory about the locomotive

Built in 1885 the 19 Class was the last 2-4-0 type to be built for the Kaiserlich Legodtenstein Staatsbahnen, a total of 8 were built of which 194 is the last example left. The class were used on express services till 1904 with the introduction of the 85 Class 4-4-2 Atlantics, from then on they were employed as a mixed traffic loco on branchline services until the 1950s when the scrapping of the steam fleet began.

Very nice steamer ''Steinkopf'. I really like it's small size and color choice. Will you be adding carriages or other rolling stock?    Posted Image

Very nice MOC Steinkopf! Very inspiring!  :thumbup:
I like the way you have used the blind wheels and how the small front wheels work without interfering with the pistons movement!  :blush:

Nicely done.  There's some great techniques on her, and I there's nothing bad I can say about the color choice.  :)

Eventually I would like to fit some detail in that area but I would still like to have a decent amount of daylight under the boiler, there are quite a number of classes from the late 1800s till the end of steam that featured a fair bit of daylight under the boiler including the Midland 4MT 0-6-0, NZR Q Class 4-6-2 and the BR 9F 2-10-0.

Plenty of steam engines had daylight under their boilers.  I'm only now revisiting old MOCs and adding, or I suppose more accurately taking away, such detail.  Check out the amount of daylight visible on this steamer I found at the Galveston Railroad Museum:
