    [MOC] LEGO KTMB 24 Class

    Ahh that's clever. Thank you. Thanks everyone! Really glad to see everyone appreciating this behemoth of locomotive running on narrow gauge tracks. Daunting to try at first but seeing the loco on a standard LEGO track looks very weird.

    [MOC] LEGO KTMB 24 Class

    I know this unrelated to my post but how did you make those custom MOC loco signatures at the bottom of your reply?

    Incredible design that captures the actual loco! Looking forward to seeing the final model in bricks.

    [MOC] LEGO KTMB 24 Class

    Thank you everyone for the kind compliments. I am so glad you enjoyed the model and the video as much as I did building it. Definitely tricky at first but am really pleased with the way the model looks and runs. Am currently working on a shunter, some rolling stock and a small station for the little layout. Will definitely update the EB Train Tech forum when I have more updates.

    [MOC] LEGO KTMB 24 Class

    Hi everyone, this my first post on Eurobricks and I wanted to share my latest MOC. The 24 Class runs on the Singapore-Malaysia-Thailand line under the company KTMB. The 24 Class locomotives were built in Japan by Toshiba Electric Co., and were introduced on the KTMB Railway in 1987. The 24 Class pulls both passengers and freight with a top speed of 120km/h. I had a lot of fond memories of this loco pulling the train from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) back when I was a kid. Here, the LEGO 24 Class locomotive is a hefty 8-studs wide and roughly 50-studs in length. The locomotive is controlled by a PFX brick (sounds and lights) and is powered by a single L-motor. The locomotive runs on the narrow gauge track (4-studs wide) by TrixBrix. The actual locomotive runs on a narrow gauge track (metre gauge track) hence running on the standard LEGO track would be out of scale. It was definitely tricky to fit the speaker, PFX module, battery box, lights and L-motor all within the body that has a lot of SNOT techniques. The bogie was another challenging aspect of the build but after many trial and error the loco can finally handle the narrow gauge curves and switches. Heres the actual 24 Class and my LEGO 24 Class I also made a short shunting video. At the start of the video, you'll hear the engine start sound followed by directional headlight change. The sound of the horn is of the actual 24 Class horn that was recorded and programmed into the PFX brick. As the 24 Class increases in speed, the engine sound picks up accordingly. The locomotive takes both the curves and switches from TrixBrix with ease. I have also submitted these photos and YouTube video to the Brick Train Awards under the 'Other Loco' Category. Hope you all enjoy the video!
