  1. Here is Lady the steam loco and her train consisting of coaches Victoria and Elton, driven by Burnett Stone and Mrs Conductor. They travel between the worlds of Sodor, our world (circa the year 2000), and many other rail-gateways, to bring the vital magic gold-dust, paying passengers and small amounts of cargo to their respective destinations in the multiverse. It's a difficult and dangerous job (especially with Diesel 10 on the prowl) , but somebody's gotta do it. Builders note: These two engines were my most beloved thing to watch in childhood up until the Polar Express movie came out to displace it in 2004. I loved to play with my wooden railway models, and would have thought I'd have died and gone to heaven if I'd had the Lego models described below when I was little, around the time the movie came out when I was 6 or 7 in 2000 / 2001. So, in short, look on, younger Murdoch17 and gasp at what you've been able to accomplish with the help of many others and quite a few years of knowledge and learning. I still am a passive Thomas fan, BTW, (my collection of books is still around somewhere!) but everything after the switch from the models to CGI turns me off., so I haven't watched the show in 10 years, just in case anyone is wondering. Oh, and the Polar Express models by @SavaTheAggie were what inspired me to get this serious into LEGO trains in 2011 or so, so I've come full circle - from Thomas to Polar Express from the movies, then from Polar Express and back to Thomas the long way round via LEGO. This model was originally Hunter Dobbs steam locomotive and is based off of "Lady" from Thomas And the Magic Railroad (you know, the 2000 Thomas And Friends film that sadly, flopped horribly.) I redid the boiler using @ScotNick design from the BR Class 9F 2-10-0. Here is a link to Hunterdobbs' original engine. Fictional background (from Thomas and friends wiki) for this engine, as seen in the Magic Railroad movie. (Also, the figure in the cab of the engine is a representation of Burnett Stone, caretaker and driver of Lady, as played by Peter Fonda in the 2000 movie.) Lady once came to the Island of Sodor a long time ago, when she was found by Diesel 10, an evil diesel engine who wanted to destroy her. Lady and Burnett Stone both ran away from Diesel 10, but during the chase, Burnett used up all her coal and made her go too fast, causing Diesel 10 to catch up and crash her. Lady was taken back to Muffle Mountain and stored inside Burnett's workshop, where he spent years desperately trying to restore her to working order, but he did not have the right coal to make her steam. Years later, Lady was still out of service, and without her, the Magic Railroad began to lose its magic. That all changed when Lily, Burnett's granddaughter, and Thomas brought a truck of coal from Sodor to Muffle Mountain, which proved to be the coal necessary to make her steam. Lady came back to life and returned to Sodor, where she was once again chased by Diesel 10. Lady, Burnett and Thomas successfully managed to escape Diesel 10, and she gave the Conductor Family the Gold Dust they needed. As a side note, while watching Thomas and the Magic Railroad as a kid back in the early 2000's, I always wondered how it was supposed to be a technical railroad if Lady (the magic steam engine who powered and ran the warp-gate railway) had no coaches for people to sit in. She had a station on Sodor, and one on in the real world in the form of her owner's workshop, (as explained in the movie) but where were the coaches she most likely used to deposit people at these points? Well, now there are two brand-new coaches ready for service! The rear of the loco, with the red headlamp. These cars have been named Victoria and Elton. These names were chosen for several reasons, but mostly for these facts: Victoria was because of when Lady was supposedly built (in the 1890's) in "Thomas and Friends" canon and that is who was Queen at that time. Elton because I was listening to a good Elton John song ("This train don't stop here anymore") and decided then and there he was going to model the second car. So, we have a stuffy, quiet-loving type coach of the late 1800's, and a flamboyant, lovable, with a passion for singing out load coach from the 1890's, but with the heart and soul of Elton John. Oh, and they are both painted bright magenta to match Lady, who is still driven by Burnett Stone, but conducted by a female version of the Mr. Conductor character from the Magic Railroad film. Burnett Stone (Played by Peter Fonda in the 2000 movie) and Mrs Conductor (played by a actress as yet unknown... fill in your favorite one!) This 6 wide BR "Warship"class with hydraulic claw (AKA Diesel 10) model has been heavily modified by me from a old Class 37 file by LazarusBricks to have new removable roof sections for the cabs with seats for figures and cab controls. As you can see, I chose to leave off the face to keep the engine more in line with the rest of my locomotives. The rear of the locomotive. This in-universe background info is from the Thomas and friends wiki and concerns the events of The Magic Railroad movie (though he is still in the TV show to date, unlike his opposite number, Lady the magic steam engine): Diesel 10 once visited the Island of Sodor a long time ago, and caused trouble for the steam engines while he was there. During his visit, he found Lady, the engine responsible for keeping Sodor alive, and chased her, making her crash. Following the accident, Lady's caretaker, Burnett Stone, hid Lady in his workshop and tried to restore her, but failed to bring her back up to steam. Several years later, Diesel 10 came back to Sodor when the Fat Controller was on holiday, intending to destroy Lady forever. He was first seen by Thomas and Gordon when he raced past them at Killaban Station, and brought his two lapdogs, Splatter and Dodge, to the railway, who were present when he was scheming. He caused several problems for the steam engines, such as dumping sneezing powder around Tidmouth Sheds and later destroying the scaffolding that had been placed beside the shed. When Mr. Conductor travelled across Sodor to find the windmill, Diesel 10 found him and held him over the Big Dipper, intending to drop him. However, Mr. Conductor managed to escape by cutting one of the hydraulics hoses to his claw with a pair of wire cutters, causing him to fling Mr. Conductor across the island and to the windmill. Diesel 10 was later present at the Coaling Plant, where he was covered in coal when he was teaching Splatter and Dodge “how to stop being stupid”. After Junior flew in the air after riding the windmill's sails, he landed on Diesel 10's cab, who raced across the island and to the smelter's yard, where he tried to push James and Junior into the melting pit. Fortunately, Junior and James managed to escape by using the last of the former's gold dust. After Lady was brought back up into steam and returned to Sodor, Diesel 10 found her and began to chase her, Thomas and Burnett across the island, until they reached the viaduct, but not before Splatter and Dodge betrayed him. Lady, Burnett and Thomas managed to cross the viaduct safely while it was collapsing, but it had already done so by the time Diesel 10 came over it and he plunged into a barge of sludge below the bridge, and was sent away in disgrace. The roof of both front and rear facing cabs can bee removed to place figures in the driver's seats. The rooftop arm can raise and lower, and the claw itself and open and close. Here we see it in the raised and open position. Originally Inspired by the Carolina Train Builders set "3105-STD" from 2001, this engine has gone through significant upgrades, including Big Ben Bricks medium driving wheels, pearl gold whistles, and printed number 1 tiles. I still haven't got the face figured out though, and I feel like I like it that way! The rear of the loco. (EDIT: Thomas and Diesel 10 have had their real world pictures added.)

    BR No. 74656 "Lord Dudley"

    I'd like to present my latest locomotive, loosely based on various British 0-6-0 goods engines. This MOC is a first for me in several ways...it's the first locomotive for which I've attempted to print decals, and the first I've built using BBB wheels. I'd like to thank @ScotNick for graciously granting me permission to use his magnifying glass technique for the front cab windows. Lord Dudley is named after a 15th century politician and its number is an homage to the USS Voyager (NCC-74656). Lord-Dudley-1 by the chestertonian, on Flickr Lord-Dudley-2 by the chestertonian, on Flickr The 3-axle tender holds a 9V motor (the third axle swivels to go around curves) and features the classic BR "lion-on-a-unicycle." I don't have a proper label maker, so I printed out the decal on regular paper and covered it with a slightly larger piece of adhesive laminating sheet. This leaves enough overhang of the adhesive layer to stick to the sides of the tender. Note that only the logo and the red lining are printed; the white lining is brick-built. Lord-Dudley-3 by the chestertonian, on Flickr The tender holds a battery box to power the locomotive lights. The batteries are accessible by removing the coal. Lord-Dudley-4 by the chestertonian, on Flickr Lord-Dudley-5 by the chestertonian, on Flickr Finally, Lord Dudley's driver and fireman pose along the line by their engine: Lord-Dudley-6 by the chestertonian, on Flickr Lord-Dudley-7 by the chestertonian, on Flickr Thanks for looking! Soli Deo Gloria
  3. Hello Train peoples :) Here to you I present a Tank Engine I built some time ago. It is probably obvious enough what it's based upon :P It may not be much, but it was the first thing I built after my dark ages. Now, with no further ado, here are the pictures! Please excuse my poor camera quality :( The rods on the wheels are actually single track pieces. This side view shows how big the cab is, i'm not sure if the proportions look proper or not.. The Unexciting back view! The inside of the cabin is a simple firebox and 4x1 tile with controls on it. Another angle of it... And finally, here is a front view of the engine. I think it looks better with two headlamps, but that's just my preference. I think I prefer working in 8 stud wide engines more than the usual 6, which is what I used to do when I was younger. The main reason I put these pictures up is because i'm probably going to dismantle it in a few days to use the blue parts for some other creations. Please let me know what you think of it, or if you have any suggestions that could make this or any future engines I might build any better? There was a great steam engine that used to run through my back garden in the 1850's to the 1950's, recently a book was published on it, i'm considering recreating it in Lego form.. Axle
  4. I've been quite busy with a project of mine...and she's coming along very nicely. I've named the locomotive Anton, and she's a 0-6-0 tender locomotive. She's the one between the Iron Workhorse and the Winter Holiday locomotive. I'm currently planning how to design the tender, as I want the power functions in the tender. the question is, what size tender should I attempt? Too long and it looks quite ridiculous to have a small locomotive with a large tender, and too short, and I won't be able to fit the train motor anywhere. Of course, Power functions are expensive, and that's why the tender is still in the planning stage. Apologies for the photo quality.
  5. I made a small Diesel Shunter in LDD, and it looks good! Front view Back view Side View Cab view. Now why don't Lego do sets like this?
  6. Dear AFOL community, after reading this forum for quite a long time, I decided to present some of my MOCs. Being a railroad enthusiast and model collector, I found that some of my favourite locomotives were not available from model train manufacturers. So two or three years ago, my "dark ages" were over (after nearly 20 years), and I began designing and building my own locomotive models with LEGO bricks. The first MOC I would like to show is my 1:30 scale model of the little Krupp "Knapsack" 0-6-0T industrial steam locomotive, as operated by the Hespertalbahn museum railway in Essen (Germany), not far from my home town (for engine details, you might want to take a look at the German web page https://de.wikipedia.../Krupp_Knapsack). At the time of designing this MOC, I did not have enough space for a track layout, so I chose to build it as an unmotorized static display model, which helped make the engine frame as detailed as possible. In order to achieve a more prototypical look, I used a couple of non-LEGO parts: BBB XL drive wheels, self-made stickers and a black rubber band around the "smokebox door" to hide the gap between the two parabolic dishes. The lamp glasses are glued into place, purists may forgive me... So here are the pictures: The cab interior: Larger versions of the images can be found here: http://bricksafe.com...derlok/knapsack I hope you'll enjoy, best wishes Sven
  7. Hello everyone, this time I would like to show you my latest PF-driven 1:33 scale model – it’s yet another industrial German 0-6-0T locomotive: During WW I, the „Gutehoffnungshütte“ in Oberhausen, Germany, commissioned a new locomotive for pulling trains loaded with slag from the company’s iron works to the nearby slag heap. The engine had to be able to negotiate very tight curves, so Hohenzollern locomotive works in Düsseldorf came up with a compact, yet powerful 0-6-0T with an extremely short wheelbase (2500 mm!). As a reference to the customer, the new engines were designated the „Oberhausen“ type. The model features two L-motors, a rechargeable battery box and a V2 IR receiver. In order to allow access to the on/off switch and the charging socket, the central part of the roof is detachable. Unlike my previous locomotives, there is no detailed cab interior, for the PF components require most of the space. At least, this is my first LEGO model with movable Walschaerts valve gear (though I have to admit that I had to cut some „3L Technic axles with stud“ to make it work). The motors are geared to the second axle only; the first and third axle are driven by the side rods. Initially, I had some doubts whether this solution would work, but happily it does very well. The only non-LEGO parts I used for this model are the stickers and custom made builder’s plates (photo-etched brass parts from Beckert-Modellbau). But let’s stop talking, here are the pictures: Note the prototypic buffers: In each driving direction, the left one is flat and the right one curved. Two boat weights help to increase adhesion weight and pulling power; besides, they compensate for the heavy PF components in the rear. For the complete drivetrain layout, please check the LXF file: The whole train: Of course, there is a video, too. I was somewhat in a hurry while taking it, so please excuse the camera shake. Perhaps I should ask Santa for a tripod… Thanks for your interest, best wishes Sven
  8. 0-6-0 steam heavy-duty switcher This model is an Americanized version of Scotnick's Thomas & friends model "Stanley" (link to that engine on Flickr: https://www.flickr.c...N07/8732762280/ ) with some new running gear provided by Hunter Dobbs from his model of the Thomas & Friends engine "Lady". (link to that engine on Flickr: https://www.flickr.c...02/16562999581/ ) The engine features a new headlight on top of the smokebox and is a little longer than the last version by about four studs. The pistons (hopefully) will work in real life, as I messed with and extended Hunter Dobbs design to include a third axle. The engine is going to be numbered 4990, with the number going on the saddle tank and the letters BRS going on the rear of the locomotive, right between the two red stripes on the coal bunker. NOTE: This model requires custom Big Ben Bricks small steam engine drivers, as in 4 flanged and 2 blind. The gears seen here are placeholders and will NOT work on track! (Link to Big Ben Bricks: http://www.bigbenbricks.com/ ) The rear of the locomotive. Background: Built in 1922 by H.K. Porter, this steam locomotive is of a saddle tank design, (that means it carries the water over-the-top of the boiler in tanks, kinda like a saddle on a horse) as part of an order for 25 engines by Brick Railway Systems, numbered 4975 to 5000. The class was built for yard work, though some were sent out onto the main lines to haul commuter trains when the need arose. This engine class features red stripes on the sides and over the tanks on top of the boiler. I will be purchasing this engine after the parts for locomotive shed I posted on February 15th. LDD file: http://www.mocpages.com/user_images/80135/1428605637m.lxf 0-4-0 steam dockyard switcher This was originally set 3740, Small Locomotive from the My Own Train series. I revamped the 2001 set, adding Big Ben Brick medium wheels and working pistons courtesy of Hunter Dobbs. NOTE: All four of the wheels are removed from them LDD model. The proper parts are available at the Big Ben Bricks website, and are not in LDD. (You need four of the "Medium Flanged Drivers")The number of the engine (3007) goes on the side of the boiler, while the letters "BRS" go on the side of the cab. Fictional background: Built in 1923 by Baldwin Locomotive Works for Brick Railway Systems (BRS), engine 3007 was part of a 250 strong class of switchers made for the tight industrial & dockyard trackage of Brick Railway Systems. The class spread from number 3000 to 3250. They were painted in classic BRS black with a red stripe along the base. LDD file: http://www.mocpages.com/user_images/80135/1428604656m.lxf Thought, Comments, and questions are all welcome! (EDIT 9-15-2015: Fixed the LDD file and pictures, plus I added a another switcher to the first post.)
  9. The very first Train MOC I did was a very small 0-4-0 Pannier Tank engine with Power Functions. It's ok, but fitting PF into it kinda threw the proportions off a bit, so I wanted to do a proper one which looked a bit more realistic in shape. So I set to work on one which was, and built it from the various different colour pieces I had, before placing an order for the parts in needed in specific colours. However, I couldn't decide on which colour scheme to have it in, whether to have the top half of it in Black or Dark Red. Eventually, I decided to do two of them, one in each colour. After placing nine Bricklink orders and an order with Big Ben Bricks in America for his Medium Driver wheels, I received all the orders this week, and built them both over the past couple of evenings. The Dark Red one has PF integrated into it, while the Black one can fit PF but doesn't yet have it, instead having brick-built 'placeholders' for the PF gubbins. I'm also waiting on a custom order from America for 13-long connecting rods, which should finish them off nicely. If anyone on here is in the UK, they will be on display (along with my other train MOCs) at the Bradford Brick Show on 8th/9th Feb, and at the Yorkshire Brick Show on 22nd/23rd Feb. So without further ado, to the pictures. Can you spot the differences?
