    Digital P-5-A locomotive

    You're too kind! I just checked, and stud.io calculated it to be around 19 oz, so it's certainly not a lightweight. I'll have to get some of those fancy ball bearings. Pretty much the only thing left for the caboose is some lighting, and maybe making the beds into bunks. And then actual assembly, of course. Thanks again!

    Good question, actually. I googled "acl caboose" and just went from there. I think the one in the picture I used is an M3, though.

    Made an ACL caboose to go with the locomotive! caboose acl #5 by Jason Laplante, on Flickr caboose acl #1 by Jason Laplante, on Flickr caboose acl #6 by Jason Laplante, on Flickr caboose acl #3 by Jason Laplante, on Flickr caboose acl #4 by Jason Laplante, on Flickr

    Well, that depends on the scale you build it at. I'm building in 1:38 (I think) and so I need larger wheels. (48.795 mm) But at say, 1:48, (generally understood as minifigure scale) the wheels need to be only 38.629 mm in diameter, which is only 2 mm off from a BBB XL wheel.

    Hypothetically it's 1:38, but I probably screwed it up somewhere Thank you! The bell was a must-have ;) The rods'll just be some from Trained Bricks. I'll see if I can get a valve gear on there too.

    Thanks! The P-5-A has 73 inch drivers, so in the scale I want they would be 48.795mm. (I'll have to get them 3d-printed) And yes, I use Stud.io. :)

    The P-5-A (Not to be confused with a PRR P5) was a type of 4-6-2 Pacific used by the Atlantic Coast Railroad. They were fast in the passenger service, and once retired to fast freight service, still performed very well; they were capable of pulling 60-70 car loads at the maximum speeds the railroad allowed. This particular one is modeled after #1504, which currently is on static display in Jacksonville, FL. I chose the P-5-A because it not only kicked butt, but it's also a "native" locomotive for me. The driving wheels are missing because I will be getting 3-d printed ones, so they aren't in the program I use.

  8. Hello! Today I have a model of a PRR B6. It's at about 1,000 pieces. The tender has enough room for a battery box and receiver, and an M motor is probably going to go in the wheelbase somewhere. It's also going to have some of Trained Bricks' fancy drive rods eventually, (When it's built) but I need to figure out how to get a valve gear on the thing first. Thoughts and advice appreciated!

  9. Hi all! I've been working on this guy in Stud.io. He's missing arms, and has several holes that need patched up. Thoughts and advice appreciated! bonkle 2 by Jason_train, on Flickr bonkle 2 #9 by Jason_train, on Flickr
  10. Thank you! The fun part will be building it out of real bricks. :) Aaaaand here's that tanker. Wanted to make it in black, but either Lego didn't make the part in that color, or it was expensive, I forget which. The rigid tubing will be bent into a ladder once it's built in real life.

  11. Thanks! Since I don't want to make a bunch of posts for a bunch of freight cars, I'm going to dump em here: Flatcar: flatcar betterer by Jason_train, on Flickr And a Gondola: 50-ish foot gondola by Jason_train, on Flickr I like the boogies on this one a lot. 50-ish foot gondola by Jason_train, on Flickr I think I deleted my renders for my Tankers, so I'll have to whip some up eventually.
  12. Not much to say about it. It's 7-wide, obnoxiously bright and has an OK interior, but i love it anyway. I rendered these in 4K only to realize I couldn't upload it in that resolution, so the res may be a bit goofy. flatcar 2.0 #2 by Jason_train, on Flickr flatcar 2.0 #4 by Jason_train, on Flickr flatcar 2.0 #3 by Jason_train, on Flickr
