    Lego MOC: TNTX 2-6-2 Steam Locomotive

    No particular engine .... just looked at a lot of photos of ?-6-? steam locomotives, but I did want to make it have a matching color scheme to the rest of my fleet of locomotives.
  2. Here's my first try at a steam locomotive ... I still need to add some cosmetic details and graphics. Once finished it will be added to my coal train fleet.

    Unit Coal Train at Brickworld KC 2019

    Pretty much all of the real estate you see in this image was built by my friend Stuart Kahler ... which he won best individual train display at Brickworld, Chicago 2019.

    Coal Gondolas for Unit Train

    Thanks! All the graphics you see on all my MOC's, I designed and created all the art myself as well as the printing on the Lego pieces. None of them are stickers, decals, or cut adhesive material. Each car does have an individual car number and serial number. If you look at the model number (CGTNTX 3) the number "3" represents what design version it is. Out of the 12 cars I made there were 5 versions. I did consider multi color cars, but decided to keep everything uniform and matching with the lime. Here is one idea I had for the cars ... Gondola_Billiard_Graphic_Concept by Terry Akuna, on Flickr

    TNTX Locomotives

    When building the locomotives I took design elements from several different types of locomotives and put it together. None of my MOC's shouldn't look like any particular model. I don't know of "anitigrav dewitt" but I did see an image similar to what I built.

    Coal Gondolas for Unit Train

    These are the coal gondolas that are used with my unit coal train as part of my coal train facility. Each car can hold one large PAB cup worth of material.

    Cloudship 1

    It's not a weather balloon .... custom designed and manufactured specifically for my airship. I did originally did buy a weather balloon, but it was not large enough to handle the weight of the ship and there was a safety problem. A weather balloon can burst and down she goes ... very bad situation. If this were to get punctured, it would only leak and slowly descend to the ground. I drew all of the wood grain in Adobe Illustrator and printed all the dark red Lego tiles myself. You can see examples of everything I print on my FB page in albums.

    Rotary Dump (Tippler)

    Here is photo during some testing. Train Indexer by Terry Akuna, on Flickr I was supposed to show it this year at Brickworld Chicago 2 019, but I wasn't able to make it, so I'll be showing it as a full coal train facility. As far as Best Train Award .... it's not a train. But, Thanks, anyway.

    Unit Train Indexer

    Here is what the Indexer looks like with the Rotary Dump. NOTE: All the red brick is a substitution for PF parts. I had to strip them for another project until my order for more PF parts comes in. Train Indexer by Terry Akuna, on Flickr
