    Virginian 2-8-8-8-4 Triplex (Version 4)

    You've outdone yourself once again, great work on the Triplex!
  2. First off, gorgeous model of a nice early streamliner. Secondly, regarding the drivers on the two Pacifics that powered the real train. It looks to me that they were actually custom designed disc drivers fitted to the pair durng the rebuild. Here's a picture of one of the two Pacifics that powered the streamliner, after the large shroud was removed. All I see that those drive wheels are needing is a bit of white or silver paint! I'm not an expert in the part designing world, but it actually might be easy for the 3rd party driver guys to take a boxpok and modify a copy of it to actually fit the design of the irl prototype's discs. Anyways, still a great looking model, can't wait to see what you do in the future.

    A review of the first elements from the FX Track system

    To be honest, as I’m planning on incorporating the bearing wheelsets from BMR(or whoever makes them can’t remember), having a 9v pickup version of those would be usefull

    Geting into it.

    Getting into Lego trains, especially the aftermarket parts like Trainedbricks and BrickTrax, is nearly as expensive as O-Scale models if the Lego model is detailed enough. It is honestly comes down to your choice on which medium of model railroading you choose.

    Custom Rod - No, not what you think

    I personally would love to see bigger wheels for the rear, most hot rods did have larger/wider rear wheels. Regarding engine block size, I know that EMD had 20-cylinder blocks powering their SD45 and SD45-2 among other engines (Found this on the internet, absolute monster of a engine if I say so myself) This seems to be the largest amount of cylinders put into a single block for a loco from what I can tell.

    Custom Rod - No, not what you think

    The Left design really sells the hot rod look, mabye add some flames shooting out of fake/real(but rerouted to be more hod rod like) exhaust.

    That's a mighty fine lil loco done up in a nice grey! One of these days, I might try my hand at the big DMIR Yellowstones, this build is surely driving me in that direction!

    iirc, Tony Sava did the DMIR Yellowstone in Dark Bluish Grey, which looks freaking great. I would recommend that .

    It looks like it could've been from this picture. The fittings and cab do have a higher contrast from the boiler jacketing so I'd say its highly likely that they ran in grey jackets for awhile

    The sheer ugliness of that brute irl is fantastic and you've gotten the general feel of the thing perfectly! Great work!

    I did triple bucks underneath my big loco's tender as well. Took me awhile to figure this out in a way that allows me to use the bearing wheelsets, but I think it's passable.

    Brick Train Awards 2021

    Posting this about an hour before the Youtube video premieres. Good luck to everyone here who entered! I can say that I've been impressed by a great many entries myself and whoever wins this year's awards is well-deserving of it.

    Texas Midwestern Lines Experimental Prototype Class J-1

    Got around to dealing with the tender handrails and experimented with Studio's render engine to get a test render of lighting done. Marker lights, both the headlight and Mars light, firebox glow from under the skirts and in the cab are what's been decided on lighting-wise. May add yellow cab lighting that turns on when the engine is stopped as well as the tender rear reversing light.

    [MOC] 4 Wide trains, DRG Class 80, DB V90

    Neat! Will there be any motorized builds or is it just too small for that?
