DISCLAIMER: This steam locomotive featured below was heavily inspired by pictures of @SavaTheAggie's 4-4-0 from 2007, visible here. I added a tender inspired by another Sava loco (his 4-6-0, also from 2007) as seen here. I also made the front bogie actually connect to the front of the loco. (before, in the original design it was totally free-floating) I also made a few structural / style tweaks here and there, to make it "my own". My dad is getting this loco for his 65th birthday, as I wanted to make him something he would find relatable to his own collection of 1990's / early 2000's 9v era trains, of which he has most of what was released. This engine is meant to go with a few copies of 10015 - Passenger Wagon, and a single 10014 - Caboose will accompany this engine. The loco isn't motorized however, but it can be by removing the tender's wheels and adding in a 9v motor instead. Sadly, when I gave it to him I forgot to get pictures of the whole train together... this older picture will have to do until I can get a proper one taken. Thoughts?
Sven J posted a topic in LEGO Train TechHello AFOLs, as promised, here’s the passenger coach for my Swedish museum train (if you don’t remember, here are links to the locomotive and the freight wagon). There is no specific prototype for this MOC; instead, I tried to reproduce the characteristic features of several types of wooden pre-WWII Scandinavian coaches. The wagon is lettered as no. 3 of JMJ, a fictional museum railway, which (by mere chance, of course ) uses the same abbrevation as the last Swedish line that operated steam locomotives in regular service. As with my previous wagon models, the roof is detachable, so you can see the fully detailed interior: Tasteful two-tone wall panelling, and a toilet paper roll in the lavatory compartment (see below). The curtains were inspired by those on marbleman’s Orient Express coaches. A shot of the interior during construction: The lavatory compartment, of course equipped with a toilet brush… … as well as a washbasin, a towel roll and a mirror. Some bogie detail, showing the primary (coil springs) and secondary (leaf spring) suspension and the axle-driven generator for the car’s electrical supply: With just over 2100 pieces and a length of 62 studs plus buffers, this is my largest MOC so far. One bench alone consists of 30 parts: I also designed a first-class version of this coach, with only six windows per side and more generous seat spacing; however, due to the lack of time and space, I chose to build only the second-class car (for now, that is). A video of my TGOJ M3a pulling the museum train will follow as soon as there’s sufficient sunlight to shoot it – at the moment, it’s all dark grey here (some of the photos were taken with exposure times > 1 sec)... As always, you will find additional images and larger versions of the photos in my Bricksafe folder. Thanks for stopping by! Best regards, Sven Edit: Videos now available here!
Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO Train TechThis old railroad station was inspired by set 7594 (Woody's Roundup!) which I have named Legoredo Junction passenger depot, (after the famous Fort Legoredo, set 6769 and the re-release set 6762) while the train is inspired by sets 7597 (Western Train Chase) and set 10015 (Passenger Wagon) I have the station and locomotive + passenger cars built. The bridge will not be built. 1870's modular passenger depot Here is the fictional background story for the station: This railroad station was built in 1874 after the original station structure (built 1867) burned to the ground in late 1873. It was confusingly named Fort Legoredo at that time by the railroad in an attempt to persuade potential settlers that this land was protected by the army, when in fact the Federal government was planning on closing down the actual Fort Legoredo. (this plan was eventually gone through with, as the Fort ceased operations when it burned to the ground in 1885 and was not rebuilt) The station has since stood for 140+ years with only slight modifications, such as adding computer control systems to the upper floor in 1980 to control the switches and monitor train traffic to the still-active silver mines. The station also serves as the oldest building in the city and is featured heavily in tourism advertisements for the city and it's historical reproduction of the original Fort Legoredo. (the US Army base, that is) The station is modular, as the roof and second floor come off and the two side platforms come apart by means of Technic pins. This lower floor features two waiting rooms with a ticket office in-between them. This office features stairs to the upper floor. The upper floor features a vintage safe that is used to hold silver dust / nuggets that is still payable for a train ticket. The metal is weighed on the scale (seen next to the safe) to ensure it is the correct type. (Read: not fake). The newspaper contains the daily precious metals prices, so that is is fairly measured and properly payed for. Eventually a special train comes though the station and the dust / nuggets are exchanged for proper paper currency, with the expensive metal being shipped back east to Denver to be made into coins and bars. The anachronistic modern computer system was added in 1980 to control the switches and monitor train traffic to the still-active silver mines. 1870's train bridge with collapsing function This bridge was inspired by Bad Cop's Pursuit (set 70802) and the short section of railroad bridge included with that set. When I first saw it, I thought it would make a great play feature for a train bridge that is actually usable by trains. Anyway, here is the result of all that working and reworking: 12 sections of PF / RC train track (It won't work with 9V, sorry!) with 1 section of old 4.5V straight track plus 2 studs of space to separate the moving from non-moving items and allow the hinge to do it's job. The design of the bridge is modular so that you can easily disassemble the bridge for transport. It disassembles into 2 lower ramp sections consisting of 4 tracks each, 2 upper ramp sections, and 1 "failure point" module consisting of a hinged (on one end) track piece. Here you can see the bridge when it's in the up position. This is how it works: Their is a hidden Technic rod under the track that should allow trains to pass by safely overhead. Pull the red Technic connector on the right side an your bridge collapses. Here is the bridge with the pins removed and track "broken". 1870's luggage cart Just a small US railroad luggage cart I whipped together in 5 minutes.... nothing special. I will be getting these with some other small projects, probably at the same time as my streetcars. LDD files and etc. Here is the LDD file for the station (version 4) by itself, if anyone wants it: http://www.moc-pages...1456867526m.lxf Here's the LDD file for the broken bridge: http://www.moc-pages...1456341678m.lxf EDIT: Here's my progress on the loco & it's train cars as of 2/22/16: Both sections are currently a Work In Progress: the coaches an 99% done, but the steamer needs parts for it's pistons to work right and few other minor details. EDIT 2/23/16: Since the last time I uploaded this, I added a roof to the waiting areas and removed some non-existent parts. The LDD file and pictures have been updated accordingly. EDIT 2/24/16: added breakable bridge pictures and it's LDD file. EDIT 2/25/16: Added updated station. It is now modular, and has two removable levels: roof and second floor. EDIT 2/27/16: Which one of these two pictures (below) do you think looks better, as I'm torn between the two. I'll add a poll so you can chose. EDIT 3/1/16: Since the l have ordered the model, and as such some substitutions have been made (such as the windows), and the upper floor has been furnished. EDIT 5/15/16: added luggage cart to the page. Just messing around with options in Google images: This photo was originally taken on the United States 100th Birthday, also known as July 4th, 1876 and shows the 4-4-0 (American) type "No. 1" pulling a passenger train into Legoredo Junction. This version of the photo is the original version, taken in 1876. A retouched and colorized version was released as a souvenir postcard in preparation for the 200th anniversary of the founding of the USA, and the 100th birthday of the engine. This version of the photo had been retouched sometime in the early 1970's to add some color into the originally Black and White photograph in preparation for the 200th anniversary of the founding of United States of America and the 100th birthday of the engine.
