  1. First off: I did not design this steam engine! I modified it heavily to suit my tastes from this Eurobricks post (link here) from user @damangos. I did, however, rework my original 7 wide Emerald Night tender from 2014 instead of the 6 wide tender used by damangos in the original model, and I also reworked his model to suit my tastes and be cheaper on BrickLink. The engine in question is modeled in LNER dark green, and is numbered one higher than the A3 engine series ever went, though it is still called the the Emerald Knight. (just the set 10194's name with an added K, as you may have noticed.) The rear of the loco, specifically the tender, should have LNER on printed 1 x 1 tiles placed on the side walls while 2509 goes on the cab walls. LNER is the name of the railroad that built the locomotive (like it's real-world inspiration, the Flying Scotsman, 4472), and it stands for London North Eastern Railway. The number 2509 was chosen because the A3 class of engines never went that high in numbering. (2508 was the highest, and was the last one built in the mid-1930's.) This pictures shows that, after some serious searching, I found the 7-wide tender of my original Emerald Night model and am going to use it on the newer damangos engine. The parts still to be ordered are on the screen behind the tender... the rest I already have, such as all the wheels for the whole train. (Thanks to Flickr user Luke Triton for jump-starting this process by asking about the whereabouts of the original engine!) These five passenger cars (four regular coaches, and one guard's coach) are inspired by the recent Hogwarts Express cars, to save money on wheels and train car bodies / frames. They don't have any of the interior details the Hogwarts Express has, though. I based the colors of the coaches on a inverted set 10194 (Emerald Night) coach color scheme. I always thought the colors looked better like this, and it avoids the problems of the tan 1 x 4 x 3 train windows used in the original set. (which are very expensive!!) Fictional locomotive backstory: This is loco 2509, built January 1936 as the very last A3 to roll out of the factory for London North Eastern Railways (LNER). It was given the name Emerald Knight, a name which, while being the name of a wining racehorse from the mid-1800's also matched it's dark green paint job. The engine was usually assigned the the Kings Cross to Scarborough line, hauling the Scarborough Flyer until being withdrawn in 1965. The engine survived WWII in remarkable shape of maintenance during those hard years due to the heroic actions of it's engine and shed crews who were said to have taken a shine to "well-riding" and "good tempered" engine. Steaming never was an issue, and the fire was always roaring right when you wanted it according to a fair amount of it's crews from 1940 to 1947. British Railways (BR) took over in 1948 and the engine was painted "Express dark blue". Loco 2509 soldiered on for 17 more years until 1965 when it was deemed unnecessary for future use and sold for scrapping. Thankfully, unlike 99% of the rest of it's class (except for the Flying Scotsman, which was also saved), it was not condemned to the scrap line for very long, as it was saved in 1966 by the Lego Rail Transportation Society (LRTS), a preservation group with aims to restore the trusty engine to it's former glory. LRTS backdated the loco to it's original 1936 exterior specifications, while keeping abreast of any interior improvements made to it's sister loco "the Flying Scotsman" (loco number 4472) over the next forty years. In early 2018, the engine was rolled into the shop for it's new boiler ticket tear-down, when it was announced it would wear LNER dark green again instead of the BR dark blue. The engine was predicted to to run again at some point in early 2020. Well, that's all I got for now... hopefully this will be built come 2020. Comments, questions, and complaints are welcome as usual!
  2. I was trying to make my own train based on the 10254 Holiday train, but was having issues with getting all the power functions to fit. I eventually decided to just build the Emerald Night to match up with the colors of 10254, and added a few minor changes. I'm fairly happy with the results. I used a plastic dye on the tender wheels, I think they turned out pretty well. See full album here: https://imgur.com/a/Ez6tuxm

    Why don't give it a try?

    I am new on this forum and started to collect Lego only since 2014-th, so don't throw rocks in me if something is wrong, but here is what I think! ) https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/lego10194
  4. This 2-6-2 Prairie type engine was inspired by the My Own Train series of 2001 and a boiler from set 79111 (Constitution Train Chase). The passenger coaches and baggage car were inspired by set 10015 (Passenger Wagon), and set 10194 (Emerald Night). They feature no interior but all three passenger cars have four opening doors. The baggage car has two opening doors, two sliding panel-doors and an "exploding" back wall inspired by set 79111. (Constitution Train Chase). The whole train together. Here we can see the rear of the train with the back wall (and dynamite) still in place. (You may notice the baggage car is a modified version of the green Western jail car I already have built) The yellow 1 x 4 bricks used are actually supposed to be green printed bricks with this on them. The tender features a coal bunker, and water tank, plus a ladder at the rear for accesses to the passenger train. The cab features a firebox door (a 2 x 2 round tile) and two printed gauge tiles. The coaches were inspired by set 10015 (Passenger Wagon), and set 10194 (Emerald Night). They feature no interior but all three passenger cars have four opening doors. The exploding baggage car was originally the Jail car from set 79111. (Constitution Train Chase) while gaining the styling of set 10015 (Passenger Wagon) and doors from 10194. (Emerald Night) This car has one play feature that is sure to blow you away: the back wall can be removed to get at the baggage compartment via the "dynamite" on the outside of the back wall. (actually, the roof top lever knocks the wall loose) Then your train robbers can make off with whatever valuable are inside! As usual, the LDD file for the whole train is seen here while the loco and tender by themselves are here. Comments, Questions, Complaints, & Suggestions are always welcome. This train is on my to-do list, but won't be built for a while... maybe this summer?
  5. I missed out on 10194 Emerald Night when it was released back in 2009, so over the last couple of months I’ve been buying the bricks for the steam engine via bricklink. I sacrificed the gold stripe round the boiler to keep it affordable (it halved the cost!) but now I've built it, I'm finding it looks a little bland without the stickers to add details like the engine number or nameplate. I'm a bit reluctant to buy a genuine sticker sheet for the set because they're so expensive on bricklink, especially when shipping to the UK is taken into account. I have seen custom printed replacement sticker sheets for various older Lego sets on eBay though (e.g. the Star Wars UCS line, and a few of the classic 9V trains from the 90s). Do you know if anyone sells replacement stickers for the Emerald Night?

    Emerald nightMARE

    Since I first build my Emerald Night I have wanted to improve the way it runs with PF. There are several things I don’t like with the original instructions on motorization. Here are the issues I want to improve on: - I don’t like the way the IR-reciever points out and break the nice lines on top of the boiler. - I don’t like the placement of the XL-motor which removes nice details. - I think the train runs rather jerky with the original setup. So, I have done some modifications that helps with some of the problems: - I have done the fix with the sylinders as described here: http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=37468 - I have also done the other fixes mentioned in issue 7 of Railbricks. - I have removed the gear on the biggest wheel that is used when the train is powered by the XL-motor, so no internal gearing is slowing the train down. - I have build a tender that consists of a train motor 88002, a PF battery box (directly above the train motor) and a IR-reciever. The tender itself reminds a lot about this 9V tender: http://www.carolinat...ld-night-to-9v/. By placing all the PF-elements in the tender I can hide all the elements nicely. When I run the tender alone it runs smoothly through curves and switch points, but when I place the engine in fronts it stops and spins in both curves and in switch points. Any idea on what I could do to solve this problem?

    Emerald Night 10194

    How do I use the power functions remote and motor? My emerald night train is built but I cannot get it to work. I can hear the motor running and the lights are on but it is not moving. Please help!
  8. Since the Train Tech Questions thread is on the downslope, I thought I'd go on and start up a brief discussion regarding a potential problem regarding larger steam locomotives. I have a couple 10194 E. Nights that I would like to combine to make a larger steam loco, along the lines of a x-8-x set up. My questions are, how does this type set of wheel setup handle regular curves and switch points? And if this is a problem, is there a solution, or just something I will have to deal with? I cannot test this as all of my track and spare E. Night are buried in storage. A side note: I would like to have each set of wheels attached to the same rods. I am more concerned about the aesthetics rather than it's ability to run on a curve, if it comes down to that. Any advice is appreciated!
