Hi, early this year I built my Lego LSWR Adams Radial EKR No 5 Steam Locomotive, the Steam Locomotive is based on the East Kent Railway Steam Locomotive No 5 and is 34 studs long, 8 studs wide and 10 bricks high, and with the SR Goods Van the Locomotive and Goods van is 53 studs long when coupled up. The East Kent Railway Steam Locomotive No 5 was a LSWR 415 Class 4-4-2T Steam Locomotive designed by William Adams and introduced to service on the LSWR (London and South Western Railway) in 1882 and was purchased from the Ministry of Munitions Disposal and Liquidation Commission in March 1923. The Steam Locomotive stayed on the East Kent Railway until March 1946 when the Southern Railway purchased her for £120 for the Lyme Regis branch where two of her sisters had kept services going for over 20 years and is now at Sheffield Park on the Bluebell Railway awaiting restoration. Due to the LSWR Class 415 4-4-2T having no tender or my model not long enough or deeper and wider boiler to hide the Lego Power Functions Battery Box and IR Receiver, I decided to build a SR 10 Ton Goods Van to house Lego Power Functions Battery Box and IR Receiver. The last couple of photos are of my Lego LSWR Adams Radial EKR No 5 Steam Locomotive next to my 16mm Scale Lego Lady Anne Steam Locomotive The Url below is video footage of me testing the Lego LSWR Adam Radial EKR No 5 Steam Locomotive to make sure the locomotive would run, for the test the Lego Steam Locomotive was built in white.
