Hello, my name is Adam and I live in South Australia. I have built a Lego train "The Ghan" NR75 (my interpretation anyway). I have tried to conform to a 6 stud wide theme on the Deck. The train lends itself however to an 8 stud wide build but I do not want to deviate from 6 studs. The proportion of the train is shortened slightly and could of been another 8 - 10 studs long but was becoming miss proportioned due to the lego track gauge. The lettering is done using either a Dymo self adhesive lettering tool, or by having professional vinyl cut letters. The Logo's are cut freehand. I like to build Australian things, as it is hard to find original Lego subjects to build. Not alot of exposure to our unique vehicles so I try to focus on giving them some. The Ghan train is a rail passenger service that goes back almost a century that crosses the center of Australia north to south, over one of the largest deserts in the world. originally the journey was made by the Afghan Camel trains on foot and the heritage is demonstrated in the vehicle's livery. This is my first post on Eurobricks, so please let me know if I could improve my posting in any way and forgive my learner ignorance. I have made a short youtube clip to try and demonstrate the modelling details I tried to accurately replicate, and to demonstrate that a train that long can run freely around a track and negotiate the tight radius! Thankyou for taking the time to look at my work. Adam The Ghan with some other Australian Lego train builds (CK class, 830 class) You tube clip.
