  1. Right now I'm designing a updated Santa Fe train consist, hopefully to scratch the urges of the original without the hefty costs, but I want to ask a few questions before I start working on it. What parts from the original are the most expensive and difficult to buy? What are some better methods to tackle the nose without the expensive parts? I'll be posting updates and images, with LDD files as I work on this and at the end will upload to my Rebrickable, where I already host an old project.

    [MOC] RENFE 151 "Santa Fe"

    Dear All, From the MTRkustoms train Factory i have the pleasure to announce my latest MOC, After some Spanish Train MOCs I wanted to make a Steam Locomotive, and I Started with the biggest and more powerful Spanish Steam, the “Santa Fe” 151 (French/Spanish) 2-10-2 (Whyte) This locomotive was able to pull a 450 tons train at 30km/h and a slope of 20mils The most difficult challenge was create a MOC that can run in R104 Blastemtrack, and R40 curves. To get the power I use a 9v dummy motor to pick up energy and 2 L PF Motors inside the boiler attached to the 9v pickup, is not a fast MOC, but is a very powerful Locomotive DIMENSIONS Locomotive length: 45 studs Tender length: 25 studs Total length: 70 studs Height: 9 bricks 7 wide Details To be a complete MOC I made some type of cars, 1 Closed boxcar, 5 open coal cars, and one caboose car. Details These 2 axle wagons have a flex hose coupling to be connected and allow Little turn of the axles. Also the coal wagons have an aperture system for the next project. All the pictures in Flickr Album And a little Video: Enjoy it

    MOC - 4 wide AT&SF EMD F7

    The EMD F7 was a 1,500 horsepower (1,100 kW) Diesel-electric locomotive produced between February 1949 and December 1953 by the Electro-Motive Division of General Motors (EMD) and General Motors Diesel (GMD). Although originally promoted by EMD as a freight-hauling unit, the F7 was also used in passenger service hauling such trains as the Santa Fe Railway's Super Chief and El Capitan. The F7's prime mover is a 16-cylinder 567B series Diesel engine developing 1,500 hp (1.1 MW) at 800 rpm. The 567B is a mechanically aspirated two-stroke design in a 45 degree Vee configuration, with 567 cu in (9.29 L) displacement per cylinder, for a total of 9,072 cu in (148.66 L).

    An overall shot Close Ups A city scene James River Crossing Metra Train BNSF Freight TGV and one I found an image of that I recreated here.
  5. Background for the locomotives and train: "Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe 302" is one of a very rare breed. Built in August 1949 as a “A” (cab) and “B” (booster) F7 diesel unit for the Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe Railway (AT&SF), This Electro-Motive Division (EMD) product was painted in a variant of the famous Warbonnet (red,yellow and silver) color scheme called Bluebonnet (blue yellow and silver). The engine was intended for freight service and did so faithfully for 28 years. In late 1977 the two unit set was on the short list for conversion to an CF7 hood unit when the Wabash Frisco & Pacific (or WF&P for short) went looking for a engine to pull it's recently refurbished Merrimack River Runner. The Santa Fe gave them a two-for-one special on the tired F7 units, with the WF&P buying the A unit and getting the B for free. The new owner realized the historic meaning of this deal more than the old owner did: this was one of the last bluebonnet engines left, and one of a handful of AT&SF F7's not converted to the horrid looking CF7 hood unit. Needless to say, the WF&P snapped up the offer, and even set the loco to the EMD La Grange, Illinois assembly plant for the motor to be replaced with a newer, more powerful and easier-to-maintain power plant. The units came back to the WF&P in 1979, and have since been teamed up with the recently restored Southern Pacific Daylight 4460 (owned by the St. Louis-based National Transportation Museum) for trips up and around WF&P system. The front of the two units. The inside of the Cab (or A) unit. The inside of the Booster (or B) unit. Here we see the Merrimack River Runner being pulled by ex - AT&SF unit #302 The open platform observation car beings up the rear of the train. It may be hard to tell, but each passenger car has tables and chairs with removable roof on top. The baggage car is empty, and the locomotives have mechanical stuff including engine blocks and cab controls. Builders notes: Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe 302 really existed, but I have no idea what it was painted. It was probably either scrapped or converted to a CF7 hood unit along with most of the other F7 locos. The number I used came from the LEGO set number 10020, which uses number 301 for it's Warbonnet painted loco. I wanted this to a be a sister loco, so I used the next one up: 302. The Wabash Frisco & Pacific is a real 12 inch gauge steam railway based in Glencoe, MO. For my purposes they have been turned into a "real" railway. The Merrimack River Runner is a copy of the Missouri River Runner, a real Amtrak train starting from St. Louis and ending in Kansas City before reversing course and going back to St. Louis with some stops in between both cities. Also, the original LEGO Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe (known as the Santa Fe) Super Chief trains cars from the early 2000's were looking a little dated, so I redid them. I added Emerald Night style doors, removed the expensive roof slopes, and added a rear platform instead of the (extremely costly) curved window glass. The Southern Pacific 4460 really exists, but has not steamed since 1959. It is located in St. Louis MO at the real-life Transportation Museum. This is my Bluebonnet powered passenger train made into a sprite of the same style used by Herby's New LEGO train Depot, which features every Lego train rendered as a sprite. (link to that website: http://www.fa-meier....epot/index.html ) Anyway, the train is pulled by two F7 locomotives (that's one cab unit and one booster unit), while the train is made up of one baggage car, three passenger coaches, and one observation / lounge car. Here is the LDD file for the train: http://www.mocpages....1417446093m.lxf And as always Comments, Questions and Complaints welcome!
  6. (Thanks to raven1280 for the inspiration to create this model.) These Electro-Motive Division F7 diesel units are painted in the Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe (AT&SF) Warbonnet & Bluebonnet color schemes. They are based off of set number 10200 (Santa Fe Super Chief) and fellow Eurobricks user raven1280's Bluebonnet MOD with a couple of my own twists inserted in some places. For example, instead of using custom stickers for the windscreen and porthole windows, I'm using regular Lego parts. Also, the undercarriage is black (not gray) on the bluebonnet engine because of this photo: https://farm3.static...951e1b39f_z.jpg The rear of the locos feature the booster units, or B units, as they are sometimes called. The B units feature through crew walkways to the cab unit. Neither the A or B units contain interiors. LDD file: http://www.mocpages....1405274343m.lxf Please see the inspiration for this MOC / MOD at this topic here: http://www.eurobrick...81#entry1936703 What do you think of my MOD of a MOD?

  7. Hello all, I am thinking about making a Santa Fe or similar EMD-F7 train. As I may create the full train (ABBA - 10-12 Coaches) I need to know how many train motors I will need to pull this lot. The train should be close to the 10020 with the B unit being James Mathis design. As this is a WIP I have not yet fully designed the train. I will be using Power Functions train motors as 9v is getting expensive. Also rechargeable battery boxes and lights. So how many motors will I need for pulling all of this? Thanks, - darthluke
  8. Hi all, First train MOC since I got back in to LEGO about 1.5 years ago. Finally got the space to do a permanent layout in the basement. Just need to set up some tables or make a workstation. Here it is! I redid the cow catcher at the last second. I changed it from 6 wide to 8. Much better this way. Allowed me to curve it more gracefully. Not happy with the headlight. I couldn't decide how to make it better though. It needs to be bigger. I didn't know I had so many 1x2 light grey grills.... I'm thinking the cover over the rear door needs to be raised a little to bring it closer to the roof. The windows took some SNOT work to get right. They're a little high on the chassis, but changing them would require tearing apart the whole thing. This engine is like... enormous compared the rest of my layout and trains. It completely dwarfs everything. If you open the door in the back, there's a little 9v battery box that powers.... An M-PF motor that turns all 4 cooling fans! All they need are some decals. That's all. Rolls around turns pretty nicely. It's a bit heavy though.
  9. Hi All, I've got a 100% complete Sante Fe Super Chief Train Engine (1 replacement piece) that I'm looking to sell. I built it last night, so I can confirm that it is 100% complete, disregarding the one small replacement piece. Conditions: Bricks and minifigures are in excellent condition Box: No Box: Instructions: No instructions, easy to find at LEGO.com for free. That is how I built the set. The replacement piece is the following: Missing (Dark grey 1x4 tile): http://www.bricklink.com/PL/2431.jpg?1 Replaced with(Stone Dark Grey 1x4 tile): http://www.bricklink.com/PL/2431.jpg?1 As you can see, there is hardly a difference. Please PM me if you are interested. I don't really have a price in mind right now because I have almost zero experience with the LEGO train line. I'm willing to ship anywhere in the continental US for free, and will consider shipping overseas for a price. PM me with your email if you would like pictures. They are apparently to large for eurobricks uploader. Thanks, Sam
