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
LEGO Guy Bri posted a topic in LEGO Train TechSince 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!
