The 4-10-2 wheel arrangement, often referred to as the Southern Pacific for the railroad which put it to use most successfully, was a unique design that utilized three-cylinders instead of the traditional two. In terms of steam locomotive evolution, it followed the 2-10-2 Santa Fe but the American Locomotive Company's (Alco) desire to advance three-cylinder technology proved somewhat problematic, at least for the Union Pacific (which referred to its roster as "Overlands" for its Overland Route main line). The SP on the other hand found their fleet quite useful and reliable in regular service and continued to use them for nearly 30 years until diesels finally took over. Hey guys! I wanted to share my completed model of Southern Pacific's 4-10-2 steam engine. I designed this model myself taking inspiration from brass models of the engine and techniques from various builders here on EB and Flickr. This model took me several months to design, build, and test but it is finally completed! The best part? You can purchase your own set of instructions to build the same model! Yes, that's right. Have all of those amazing BMR rolling stock and maybe one or two of my SP & UP PFE cars but no engine to pull it? Well now you can build an expertly modeled steam engine that will fit in with your rolling stock perfectly. Instructions can be purchased here: https://www.bricktraindepot.com/product-page/southern-pacific-4-10-2 The model is powered by two XL PF motors, and a AAA battery box in the tender. An SBrick is housed in the tender as well. Features side rods by @zephyr1934. This engine can haul a LOT of rolling stock. Was going to test with all 45 of my train cars here soon but I am positive it will work exceptionally well. Let's get on to some pictures!

I've posted this elsewhere on social media, so apologies if it's been shown before. Here's me with my copy of Tony Sava's SP 4449, alongside the real locomotive in Portland, OR. Daylight, meet Daylight by Ritzcrackerman_22, on Flickr The SP 4449 recently completed its federally mandated 15 year boiler inspection and remains in permanent display at the Oregon Rail Heritage Foundation. Aside from Thomas the Tank Engine , the SP 4449 may be the most photographed locomotive in the world. She is arguably one of the most beautiful locomotives ever built, and kept that way by the all-volunteer Friends of SP 4449. Many thanks to Mr. Sava for making these instructions available - and as you can see for yourself, his rendition is nearly perfectly proportioned to the real-life locomotive. Next on the docket for me will be to complete some 8w coaches to go along with her.
Hi. This is my first lego train and train MOC. I started it at the begining of spring, but then was a difficult period in my life (my girlfriend left me after 6 years of relationships because she do not loves me more, also i finished second degree in the institute - hard session and the protection of the diploma), so I did not have time to finish this MOC earlier and make photos. Hope You like it. Photos are here The prototype
