    Maybe snot some plates on the sides, with the studs being rivets? Besides that I have no idea. Great build regardless!

    AT&SF #2926 - 4-8-4 Steam Locomotive

    Absolutely stunning! As someone who has both Lionel and Lego, the smoke and lighting look fantastic, and take the best parts of Lionel and put them into Lego. Amazing work!

    Heartlake Express... My Lego Friends Train

    Could you try having that entire bottom stripe magenta? Looks great regardless?

    Ideal Ideas train.

    I think that Matthes’s TEE could be a very strong candidate.

    LEGO VT 11.5 Trans Europ Express (TEE)

    There are no words... Amazing? Perfection? Beautiful? All applicable to this build. Not only the best train MOC, I’d say the best mid-size MOC I’ve ever seen, ever. Put this bad boy on Ideas and it’d get enough votes easily. I’d buy it for $250+ As for the roof color, I prefer DBG, but it appears I’m one of a few who think so...

  10. In the mean time, you have a stunning freight engine! What system is it powered with?

    What’s your Railway called?

    Is that a play on Norfolk & Western? I like it!

    Maybe that’s their strategy... 🙃

    Powered Up FAQ and Community Wishes

    The only thing I can think of using PoweredUp for now is steam engines with a 4-X-X or X-X-4 wheel arrangement, with the 4 being the motor and the Box/Reciever being in the tender.

    What’s your Railway called?

    Just wondering what the people on here called their Lego City/Railway Setup, and how it got that name. I’ll start ya off with mine, the Mid-Western Metropolitan Railway (MWMR). I live in the Mid West of the United States (the area in between the Mississippi, Missouri, and Ohio Rivers, for the most part). There isn’t really a “Mid-West-Centric” Railroad in the US, so the MWMR is my recollection for that fact. MWMR’s lines are, mostly, West of Pittsburgh, North of St. Louis, and East of Oklahoma City, but we do have trackage rights to Denver and Cheyenne via the Union Pacific, New Orleans, Dallas, and Houston via Kansas City Southern, and to New York and Philadelphia via Norfolk Southern. MWMR is the only Class 1 Railroad in the US to still use electric engines, and one of the few in the world, besides commuter line, to electrify via a third rail between the track (AKA, I run Lionel, too. 🙃). The MWMR’s official colors are Olive Green, Gold, and Black, and has the nickname “The Easy Route” fo two reasons: 1) The Railroad is able to bypass Chicago, meaning most routes avoid the traffic there unless they terminate there, and 2) There’s pretty much no mountains or obstacles to go around aside from Rivers. My City itself is called Submuloc, which is the semordnilap for Columbus, where I live. So what’s your Lego Railway called? And what City (fictional or not) are you modeling?
