    (MOC) Tiny PF switcher shunter

    It is a very cute little locomotive!!! And it works really fine! The Idea of wrapping the battery box is a really good solution to make things smaller!!!

    1:25 Eritrean 0-4-0T Locomotive "202 series"

    Hi Erik, It is a very nice locomotive!!! Someone says that the first look is important - this MOC immediately gave me the idea of a small, economic Italian locomotive. And even if it is Eritrean, the feeling was correct. Both locomotives, the mallet and the small one, were made by Ansaldo and Breda - two big italian manufacturers. And if a MOC immediately gives a so precise feeling...well it means it is a very good one! Only some suggestions when you'll build it for real (all things I've encountered experimenting large scale models ) I think one XL motor could be fine for moving this beauty - the batteries won't last so long, so using the BIG PF battery box with high capacity rechargeable batteries could be useful. Try to keep the body as light as you can - e.g. my locomotives are built with 2-wide bricks to be more solid - but they're too heavy and I loose half of the power only to move the body. I'm currently making both of them lighter, Two axles locomotives may have problems managing the standard Lego curve radius and the switches, resulting in slowdowns and stress on transmission gears. Maybe Big Ben Bricks wheels are easier on tracks, but standard Lego wheels have some problems in managing large interaxles. Some parts (e.g. buffers , coupling rods made by old parts, headlamps holders, ski sticks) are quite unusual, so trying to simplify them using common parts will save you some money. Keep up the good work!!! Davide

    MOC - Garden Toy Train - 12-wide

    Hi! Good point, showel is small - it seems a beach toy - I have to find a gray showel in my wife's Fabuland box! A tender was something I did not even consider - 7810 has always been a locomotive without tender so I did not think about it. But given it has an open back - a small tender (2 axles) could fit nicely. The sound generator seems loud on youtube videos - but also XXL motor is quite loud. I did not have time to solder the kit during this weekend, we're preparing for holidays so we had some things to do Thanks for your suggestions - always kind and useful!!!

    LEGO Boost Train

    Very nice little train - I still have the Boost Cat waiting for my daughter to learn how to use it...Maybe I can borrow the Boost base for a train experiment

    MOC - Garden Toy Train - 12-wide

    Hi there! Thanks!!! The sound will be very "toyish" - there is an hack that can be done to make the sound a bit more deep (changing a resistor type). The speed of steam blows and volume are regulated trough potentiometers. I am a real beginner on electronics - so once the kit is all soldered and working I will try to understand how to integrate it with PF motor. I searched also for a "diesel" sound generator but I did not find any kit like this one - pity.
