    (MOC) - The 60163 - Tornado

    "In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if...." No wait, that's not what I meant!! In 1990 a group of people came together to share an extraordinary ambition – to construct a brand new Peppercorn A1 Pacific. They formed The A1 Steam Locomotive Trust and after nineteen years of incredible effort that locomotive, No. 60163 Tornado, moved under its own power for the first time in 2008. - https://www.a1steam.com Having created my first MOC (link), I was keen to improve. Mostly the running performance (the pistons never worked that well), the look of the engine, the carriage, its ability through switches and the playability.... so, basically everything. Looking for inspiration on the 'net I came across 60163 in her blue livery and loved it. I had found my Emerald nights' partner steam train. 3 years later, I'm very happy to present my Blue Tornado! Full Flickr album here - Link The dual axles for the smooth running of the pistons isn't very realistic compared to the original, but this was a trade off between usability (kid proofing), smooth running and accuracy. 7 Wide for the train and carriage allows for so much more detail and usable space, but presents some tricky issues. The white lines are thin modelling stickers the rest is all genuine lego, with no modifications. Only two parts aren't in current production (in the right colours) the 6L grey axle and 'Roof tile 2x1x2' in blue. I liked the challenge of production parts only, and the lower BL cost, even though the proportions are now off. Design details: The driver wheels are inset by about 1/2 a plate into the body to make them appear bigger than they are. It also allows for a lower centre of gravity to make sure it doesn't derail at full speed around corners! The second picture also shows how I kept the top 'rail' stable whilst maintaining the colour scheme. The two single black studs on the left side are '1x1 with hole' with a 'Technic, Axle Pin 3L with Friction Ridges Lengthwise and 1L Axle' through the whole section. 3 3x2 black tiles were removed, along with the whole 'boiler' and roof of the cab (it's all one assembly). Front and rear bogies have vertical and lateral movement for non flat lego track. Couple of Youtube videos: (Part 1 (below) and Part 2) Finally I've added it to LEGO ideas. More in the hope of trying to get another Creator Expert train out of LEGO or to show that there is still love for trains in general. It'd be great to get your support :) https://ideas.lego.com/projects/fc675426-9e80-4c8b-bab3-b99be6983312
