    [MOC] GE U36B (6-wide)

    I haven't built a new diesel MOC in a little bit, so I decided to take a crack at a new challenge. This time, I decided to try and do a GE U36B. These were part of General Electric's 'Universal' Series, with 3600 HP and a B-B wheel arrangement, hence the name. 125 were produced between 1969 and 1974, with most of them going to Auto-Train and Seaboard Coast Line (Later CSX). As far as I can tell, most of these units were scrapped with only a few remaining examples today. And then here is my rendition of it. The livery is of my fictional railway company. I'm pretty proud of the building techniques that I used to get the front of the nose to offset like that, but it still needs a bit of work to be closer to the prototype, I think. I also tried using the regular steering wheel piece for the brake on the side of the nose, but I found it stuck out too far. Instead, I went with an old film reel piece, and I think it gets the idea across. Thankfully it came in white. Squeezing the PU hub into this locomotive was tough while keeping the entire back end as close to 4w as possible. I ended up using a technique I used previously to mount the hub inside the fuel tank. I then used sideways flags to try and hide the connections for the motors. I think it's decently well hidden, but I couldn't come up with another better solution. Also, since the Hub is so far down in the locomotive, a small section of roof lifts off and there is a technic axle you can push that hits the button on the Hub. Overall, I'm pretty happy with it. There's a few things I want to revisit and redo at some point, but for now, I'm calling it done. As always, if you would like to download the Stud.io file, here is the link to all of my MOCs I've posted on here. This one is under the file named "U36B". Legownz's Train Mocs - Bricksafe Thanks for looking!
  2. This is definitely one of my simpler builds. It's nothing more than a reskin of the 60052. I chose the CSX scheme primarily because of the prevalence of blue and the excellent sticker set from The Sticky Brick for $8. This is my first re-skin attempt and it feels a little like cheating after the dozens and dozens of hours that went into my BNSF and my 4-4-0. That said, my goal wasn't something original. Rather I wanted badly to improve the toy scale looks of the original loco. In all it about 150 parts and ran about $15 including new side panels. Here's a link to the file on bricksafe if you want to build, modify or inspect my work. Hope you like! My Bricksafe Files

    CSX EMD SD60MAC

    First off, for any of you train nerds in here, I know it's not an SD60MAC. This is like a hybrid SD80MAC and SD50/60MAC. I really like the aesthetic of the rear radiator housing on the SD80MAC but really like the front end look of an SD50/60. In this thread I will also be posting progress to the build and getting both trains built. Right now I'm going to try and figure out a way to motorize these trains with RC motors for heavy payloads. I may just end up investing into some more 9V track and motors to keep the 6 wide form factor. The sides are blank for CSX stickers to later be put on the train

    Updated PF CSX ES44AH Locomotives

    Lately I updated my CSX locomotives that I built back in 2014-2015. Since I perfected similar models with the Florida East Coast builds, I just took what I did and applied it to the models. Plus, I improved on where I placed my battery box making the engine much easier to operate! Here's video of me running it around my layout at Gold Coast Railroad Museum. I also threw in some model O Scale footage, perhaps for comparison Enjoy!

    CSX EMD 70

    This is a CSX EMD 70 train that I designed one day. I chose the CSX one mostly because I liked the coloring. There are several other MOCs of this train around the internet, but they mostly use 9V, and I wanted to do one that ran on Power Functions. Thanks for looking at my MOC!

    Tropicana Juice Train

    While the design is over a year old, and the original train cars as many as three, I finally decided to do a video timelapse showing some of the building process for a reefer seen on Tropicana Juice Trains, which gives it the feel of a Train Set. CSX is the primary carrier of these with UP and the Florida East Coast contracted to handle juice as well.
