Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO Train TechNOTE: As some of you might be able to guess, this loco was inspired by pictures of @SavaTheAggie's original streamlined Hudson locomotive from 2007... no instructions were used to build this engine. See the inspiration here on Flickr. This Art Deco-styled 4-6-4 steam loco is to be numbered 5447 and is sort-of modeled after a real, long-scrapped New York Central engine. The tender really should say the railroad's full name instead of its initials, but I don't want to shell out the money for all those 1 x 1 tiles, so I'm using fewer 2x2 tiles instead to spell out NYC, as it's much cheaper that way! The rear of the loco. You may have also noticed I've also placed older 9v-era couplers on the loco and tender, as my dad has the 20-year old Santa Fe Super Chief car that (I'm hoping!) he'll let me eventually display with my loco at Gateway LUG shows. The tender top *should* line up directly with the roofline of the Santa Fe cars my dad has. Thankfully, those coaches look close enough to pass as the New York Central's 20th Century Limited as well as the ATSF Super Chief coaches they were modeled after - especially as they are without any stickers applied! If all that doesn't work out, I'll just build a bunch of coal hoppers and have it placed about to demolish my Iron Giant, like in the animated film! NOTE: This MOC is either going to be a January 2024 or December '23 build. I have other things I have to do first that will influence that decision, so we will see when this gets built. I will keep you guys posted on any progress, of course! Thoughts, comments or questions welcome!
Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO Train TechThis is my latest project: a 4-6-4 Hudson Dreyfuss inspired stream-liner and it's corresponding train. It was heavily inspired by pictures from Anthony Sava's photo-stream from 2008 and 2007. No instructions were used to build this model. The railway name on the sides of the tender will read Legoredo Northwestern Railroad. The sides of the engine shall have the number 7444 written on it in official printed 1 x 1 tiles. The engine number comes from the screenshot number that was the first WIP shot that I took and coincidentally is near Mr. Sava's 7244 number on his Hudson - type. Here is a link to his model and the only picture I worked from: https://www.flickr.c...s-55973205@N08/ The rear of the engine has a ladder, two hand rails and a red marker light. Here is a close up of the nose of the engine. Fictional engine background: These fifteen 4-6-4 (4 leading, 6 driving, 4 trailing) streamlined steam locomotives were designed for fast passenger work on the Legoredo Northwestern Railroad. The three best riding locomotives of the batch were shrouded in a streamlined, aerodynamic casing, and were assigned to “the Rocket”. This meant they were usually flying along at top speed from New York City to Seattle, with one train going one way and another going the opposite direction. The third engine was held in reserve in case of breakdowns, ready to go at a moments notice. Fictional train background: Here we see the Dreyfuss Hudson pulling a passenger train called "The Rocket", heading from New York City to Seattle via the most northern transcontinental line in the USA. The train is run by the Legoredo Northwestern Railroad and gets it's name from the very fast speed of the train, and for the originator of all modern steam engines, George Stephenson's "Rocket" of 1830. This new train started being run exactly one hundred years after that famous engine began the era of the Iron Horse. The train consists of one baggage car, three passenger coaches, and one observation car. (these coaches are not in the LDD file) NOTES & LDD FILE: Here is the original NYC loco I was inspired by. (picture from Wikipedia) I have found over 500+ parts for this train, so this Art Deco loco and ti's consist will be (hopefully) finished by the end of this year. I also have the LDD file for the engine by itself here ( Hudson locomotive only ) comments, Questions and Complaints are always welcome!
