  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. 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: I hope you'll enjoy, best wishes Sven
  5. 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
  6. 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: ) with some new running gear provided by Hunter Dobbs from his model of the Thomas & Friends engine "Lady". (link to that engine on Flickr: ) 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: ) 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: 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: 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.)
  7. 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?
