Metro Exodus - Aurora Steam Locomotive Hello to everyone, Metro Exodus, inspired by the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky, is the first game to be fully established after the books, not between them or among them. Aurora is in the game, with the steam locomotive Lego design. The Aurora (Russian: Аврора) is a heavily modified steam locomotive, boarded by Artyom and Anna to find a new home far to the East in Metro Exodus. It serves as a mobile base for the player. Yermak is the Aurora's helmsman, while Miller serves as its crew's leader. The Aurora is a "duplex" locomotive, with two sets of driving wheels in what appears to be a 2-8-8-4 configuration, which means a forward pilot truck with two wheels, two sets of driving wheels with eight wheels each, and a rear trailing truck with four wheels. In Russian configuration, this would be a 1-4-4-2. The locomotive may be a heavily modified Russian P38 articulated locomotive which were the biggest and heaviest Soviet steam locomotives in existence. It might also be based on two Soviet IS20 locomotives (like IS20-317) combined into a single engine. Those were made from 1932 to 1942, and were used even all the way up until 1972. Most were scraped in the 1980's due to larger locomotives had taken there place on Soviet railroads. This is the first steam locomotive in the Metro series of games. The locomotive that was converted into the Aurora could have been taken from one of several Moscow's railway museums, where some steam locomotives are preserved in a fairly good shape, despite their age.

Some time back I have built a ship which was inspired by Tintin's adventures. Now the time has come to disassemble the "Aurora" but before that I wanted to take and present some pictures: I was happy to include the small yellow aircraft. The Aurora was meant to undertake underwater expeditions. Therefore there were two small submarines in its hull. "Doors" would open to let the submarines dive into the water (but you can't really see that well on these pictures...sorry.) What you can see here is that the ship was build in a modular way. It also had sliding doors. The sad thing is: my sons never played with it... Seems I have built it mainly for me. C&C welcome!
Sometimes I wish we were still in that age of dicovery, when there were far away unknown regions to explore... When people were baffled by inventions and were up for going on a adventure of a lifetime. With a little mix of science, myth and fiction thrown in. Anyway, enjoy. Aurora; a hoverboard inspired by 'VNV Nation - Automatic'. More on my Flickr photostream.
