    2010 Train Sets

    i found this and i didn't see it the conversation yet http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Gabcsi/2010/7597.jpg it is toy story but its also a train and not a bad looking one at that. i'm still slightly skeptic note the picture is not mine
  14. finally, after a half a year of work from concept to finished product i give you.... The Cumbres and Toltec scenic railroad's (ex DRG&W) K-36 mikado (2-8-2) narrow gauge locomotive. the K-36 is a narrow gauge engine built by the Baldwin locomotive works in 1925 for the DRG&W (Rio Grande) They have 36,000 lbs of tractive effort which is what the 36 in K-36 stands for the K stands for the 2-8-2 wheel arrangement. just a note this is the same engine that Brian Williams circus train has, I started work on the wheel set 2 weeks before i saw the first pictures of his great model (he beat me to it ) . I did steal the boiler from him so many thanks to him for that. more on brickshelf (when moderated) prototype hope you enjoy, this engine was quite a challenge

    MOC: DD40AX

    maybe you've maybe you haven't but i thought it was worth a mention because it is the first model of the famous union pacific DdA40X's. the DDA40X was two engines put onto a single chassis, it is the biggest and most powerful diesel ever any ways check out this train. brickshelf go up to see some more cool trains too
