    MOC: Excalibur

    Work got fifth place (of the thirty seven) in a contest "Steampunk Machine", at Bricker.Ru site (in 2013 year). You can look for other works by this link. Text is taken from the contest: Ladies and Gentlemen! Mesdames et Messieurs! Herr und Frau! Tovarischi! Come closer!!! Only today you can see by your own eyes New, Fantastic, Practical & Efficient self-moving vehicle Excalibur!!! Let me introduce the Inventor: Mister Fines Moriarty... What can you tell us about your creation? - First of all it is: - Three-axle vehicle of cross-country ability. - Aggressive appearance helps to scare away the bad ghosts & silly pedestrians. - Excellent colors! Noble bronze & yew. - Equipped with the newest steam boiler. - Two exhaust pipes helps to control temperature in boiler! - On both sides of cabin there are wide convenient doors. And good rear-view mirrors. -Capacious cargo bay. - I will not show you what is inside ;) - Two headlights. - System of steam-cylinders are FIRST TIME-made in one case! - Windscreen wiper. On the upper side you can see inlet of the: - Air Injection System. Also we can see fire-box-door. It can be feed by wood or coal of other fuel. - Steering-wheel provides precious steering control. Or you can buy it, or it will follow you in your nightmares… You to choose... ;) I hope you liked it. Thanks for watching! Yours, Pikachu... P.S. If you find mistakes - please write to me & i'll correct them.
  2. This MOC is a blast from the past: . The year was 1999 when I joined GMLTC to exhibit at the NMRA National Train Show in Minneapolis, Minnesota. To my knowledge this was the first time a Lego layout exhibited with the NMRA National Train Show - and it was a HUGE hit. My contribution to honor the occasion was to build the William Crooks: the first locomotive to operate in Minnesota and two prototypical cars of the Saint Paul and Pacific Railroad. Now remember this model is a tad old... and it hasn't been upgraded through the years. It retains a basic slope boiler and studs on the roofs. However, the custom stickers still hold-up with the best today as they were made on an Alps. The technique to allow the cylinders to clear the pony truck is still quite unusual. And of course there is the pure nostalgia factor ! - Brian Williams

    MOC: The General

    One of the most enduring stories of the Civil War is the 1862 Andrews Raid... or better known as the Great Locomotive Chase. The namesake at the center of this drama is the locomotive "The General": . The paint scheme shown here is not how she appeared in 1862... however it is the one popularized in the mid-20th century and what most people remember. This static display model was a commission. It leverages many techniques from my Wild Wild West locomotive "Inyo" but with a more traditional brick frame. It also sports a set of Zephyr1934's (Ben C's) custom drive rods ( ). My only regret is that I ran short of large BBB drivers so had to include standard Lego drivers :-( - Brian Williams
  4. This little engine was inspired by the little shunting engine from LEGO's own City set, 4204 'The Mine' which it is pictured with below. This little engine is just 5 studs wide, and can run on rails at just 4-studs wide. The LEGO historians amongst you may recognise the character on which it's name is based. The engine is based on the iconic miniature engine 'Talyllyn', from the Talyllyn Railway, the worlds first preserved railway in Wales, United Kingdom. The aim was to not to create an exact replica of the engine, but rather it was a self discipline exercise to produce a set that would fit in nicely along side the rest of the LEGO City range. As well as to represent a steam engine at this small scale. Heres an image of it next the magnificent Emerald Night to appreciate the scale of the model. The entire 3-piece train is a tad longer than just the Emerald Night's Engine section! Had all the pieces been available in their respective colours I would have made a physical version of the model, but alas they don't, so instead this model was created using Bricksmith and rendered in POV-Ray (Thanks to C3POwen's awesome tutorial). I've decided to upload it to LEGO Cuusoo, so if you like please SUPPORT it there. It would be great to have an actual LEGO Train set that was more affordable to those with a smaller pocket, as the smaller sets in the Trains range always seem to be random rolling stock, railway furniture (lights, station accessories, etc) or track packs, not much with the 'swoosh/chuff' factor. There are more pictures as well as a second engine and some other rolling stock in the works which I'll post up here, and in its Flickr Album when they arrive..
  5. There doesn't seem to be a dedicated thread on here about this year's STEAM, so I created this one to show a couple of videos. This one's mine: This one was made by Infinite 8, who were also there on the Saturday with some expensive-looking equipment, and is slightly higher quality: Enjoy.
  6. I bought some instructions from Anthony Sava's BrickLlink store the other day, and finally finished MODing the model in LDD. The instructions I bought were very easy to understand, and If your thinking of buying them, do it. You won't regret it! ...Anyway, I haven't come up with my usual backstory yet, so here are my pics. The locomtive is number 1227, and was built in 1933 by Lima Locomotive Works for Brick Railway. The white tiles on the tender / cab are supposed to be printed, and in real life will say: Sides of cab: 1227 Sides of tender: BRICK RAILWAY SYSTEMS Rear of tender: BRS (or maybe 1227, I haven't decided on this yet) Inside of the cab. The slopes will be replaced with two printed pieces, and the firebox door is also a placeholder. I really enjoyed redoing this model, and making into my style. Once again I wish to thank you, Mr. Sava, as you design really thought out, good looking engines' & rolling stock. I give you :thumbup: for excellence and ingenuity. (NOTICE: NO instructions will given here or anywhere else by me, so don't even ask, as I don't want to take away Anthony's hard work and give it away for free. If you really want it, buy the instructions & modify it.)
