    [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".
