Hello Train peoples :)

Here to you I present a Tank Engine I built some time ago. It is probably obvious enough what it's based upon :P

It may not be much, but it was the first thing I built after my dark ages.

Now, with no further ado, here are the pictures! Please excuse my poor camera quality :(


The rods on the wheels are actually single track pieces.


This side view shows how big the cab is, i'm not sure if the proportions look proper or not..


The Unexciting back view!


The inside of the cabin is a simple firebox and 4x1 tile with controls on it.


Another angle of it...


And finally, here is a front view of the engine. I think it looks better with two headlamps, but that's just my preference.

I think I prefer working in 8 stud wide engines more than the usual 6, which is what I used to do when I was younger.

The main reason I put these pictures up is because i'm probably going to dismantle it in a few days to use the blue parts for

some other creations.

Please let me know what you think of it, or if you have any suggestions that could make this or any future engines

I might build any better?

There was a great steam engine that used to run through my back garden in the 1850's to the 1950's, recently a book was published on it,

i'm considering recreating it in Lego form..
