jamesed_1971 posted a topic in LEGO Train TechSince I was last active, I have enrolled in the 16mm Association of Narrow Gauge Models and with the next year will be build two models railways of which one will be a Lego model railway and a model Railway at 16 mm scale using SM32 track to represent 2ft narrow gauge track, while looking at Locomotives options as I still need to buy or build my 16mm scale locomotive, this gave me a idea, why not try to build a Lego 0 Gauge scale version of my LNER A3 Flying Scotsman Steam Locomotive which the design could be used to develop a 16mm scale locomotive using 32mm track to run on. Over the last view days I started to mess in Ml cad and LDD 4 to see if a chassis which will be able to run on 0 Gauge track, the proof of concept design was finished in LDD 4 this morning at 10 AM UK time The model when built will have a chassis frame 3 studs wide allow the locomotive wheels to be set a 32 mm Gauge to be able to run on 0 Gauge track, I also have worked out how to motorized the locomotive, the body I will build at 7 studs as this seems to a match for 0 Gauge Locomotive width. View of the new chassis frame with the gears set up allowing a easy way to motorize the locomotive. View of the new chassis frame showing the 3 stud wide frame and the distance between the frames and the trains wheels which need to be set like this to be able for the wheels to be set at 32 mm Gauge. The next step is to build a physical model and do a test once the Peco 0 Gauge track which I have ordered from Ehattons arrives in the post.
jamesed_1971 posted a topic in LEGO Train TechHi, over the weekend, I started work on building my new Lego LNER 4472 Flying Scotsman Steam Locomotive, as the final order from Bricklink arrived on Saturday, it took me a couple of hours to build the model, I had already built the chassis couple of weeks before The Lego LNER 4472 Flying Scotsman model is 19.5 inches long, 2.5 inches wide, just under 4 inches high, the front and rear lights on the Lego LNER 4472 Flying Scotsman work, two bricks behind the rear lights had to be modified to allow the power function lights to be used, the large train wheels are XL Big Ben Wheels The model just needs some extra details like pipes, lining, and lettering to be added, the wheels have to be dye green and other details to finish the model. I have taken new photos of my Lego LNER 4472 Flying Scotsman Steam Locomotive, including some other parts Couple of images showing closeup of the wheel hubs A Image of couple of modified Lego 1x2 Panels with Lego white headlights bricks A image showing the power function lights fitting into the modified Lego 1x2 Panels with Lego white headlights bricks a couple of images of the Power Functions Battery (AAA type) in the tender, show the wires packed around the battery box, Couple of Images showing the wire connections between the locomotive and tender A couple of Images showing the tender including the Lego Coal Pile (Lego 1x1 Black Plates) A couple of images showing the rear and front lights working, the second image is darker as the front lights don't show up well in bright light when on A image of the Flying Scotsman Tender with its wheel arrangement
