Hi all, I'd like to present you my first 12V MOC. It is a Deutsche Bahn BR78 - inspired locomotive, built using extra pieces from a 7730 and 7750. This is the third big steamer I use, along with the original 7750 and the 7777 steam locomotives. I built this one following using special pieces (e.g. lights lenses are yellow/clear like in 7750 - rubber pipes on the sides) and following the style of the early 80's Lego trains. It was simplified in many details, like the cabin (using standard doors and windows) and sides (which are missing a lot of leverages, handrails and so on). Here it is on my test station - front and rear lights are on when moving forward, small white light on the back is on when moving backwards. Hope you like it!
BR 78-281 4-6-4 Steam Locomotive Hello Everyone, this Easter I present my last creation …a new medium size BR steam locomotive: the BR 78-281 Tricked by the apparent simplicity of the project I had to work hard to create a LEGO model similar to the real one, in particular the construction of the front window and the roof of the locomotive made me slow down a little bit This time I have used a SNOT technique to recreate the rounded profile of the back of the locomotive, and the main windows of the cab The locomotive is driven by one medium motor hidden in the boiler …to maximize the pulling power I have coupled the new BR with my fake caboose (a locomotive with two RC motors) obtaining also an interesting slipping effect! The BR 78 has lights with the usual switch hidden in the coal section Enjoy the video and the photo gallery! That's all!
