    MOC: EMD DDA40X (WIP)

    It was a lightweight AC&F car remodeled to accept the additional weight of the heavy power generation equipment on the one end at some point from the baggage car it was.

    MOC: EMD DDA40X (WIP)

    Thank you for the kinds thoughts, I tried to keep it true as I could given the fixed bricks within which we build, my fleet is growing at a snails pace, here's an update: DDA40X #6936, HEP UPP #207, U50C #5037 by J.J. Williams, on Flickr

    LDD Help with Trains

    I know this is not the 100% correct forum, but I think those of us who model in LDD will be happy this part is in the latest update!

    Power Functions Battery box Size

    4 Bricks / 12 Plates tall. The rechargable and AAA box are the same size. Thats a good question, until just now when I pulled one of each out of my trains to double check that fact, I always assumed they were

    MOC: EMD DDA40X (WIP)

    Thanks UrbanErwin! There are I believe 14 out of 1940 or so total parts that have been modified from very minor too unholy amounts, I'm not a 100% purist but in some of the details and the truck engineering it had to be done to work correctly, but it's all stud & tube no glue. The 2 which you inquire is this part for the antenna http://www.bricklink...Item.asp?P=3957 but just the top 1/2" or so I cut off and stuck into this http://www.bricklink...Item.asp?P=3794. The light is this http://www.bricklink...tem.asp?P=58176 stuck thru a http://www.bricklink...tem.asp?P=3070b that I drilled out to the diameter of the light and then under it is this http://www.bricklink...tem.asp?P=3062b to hold it all in place.

    Thank you Werlu Ulcur that means a lot, I think Swoofty http://www.flickr.co...s/swoofty/sets/ has modern diesels well covered Thanks Spitfire2865! Go big or go home was the thought when I started this plan 1 year ago Thank you lostdriveway. Thanks riograndefan, I think a U50C is next on my list. Thank you Locomotive Annie, I'd kinda hit a brickwall & endless frustration with the decals, but finally got them done in time for her first public show this Saturday @ http://www.brickscascade.com/ Its an awesome engine Pop Bumper Pete, I've yet to be next to the real thing hoping to see the #6913 in her new home in the next year or so. Mines is close in size to MTH's o scale unit at around 25" or so. I've not run it on flex track just PF or 9V tracks, I went thru 4 D-D truck designs before I found one that gave me the least gruff on exiting a normal lego radius curve. On wide long radius curves I suspect she'd run like a champ.

    Radio Control Train Sets

    peterab: Thats one thing I like about these 2 train sets, the batteries change out in seconds, no taking half an engine or tender apart to swap out for fresh power

    LDD MOC Hi-Rail mow Semi

    I've been tinkering around in LDD to mash up a moc based loosely off of 2 lego city sets 3179 utility truck for tool storage 3677 hi-rail pickup, it must be able to ride the rails But. I frankensteined that idea by adding in a bit more 3221, because I wanted it to be a semi 4205, for its rugged off road look and ended up with is!
