Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO Train TechThe following creations were made with help from about five people, not including myself. Please see each model for more details. The steam switcher was originally a model by Scotnick, which had no working pistons and was colored white and red. I borrowed some pistons from one of HunterDobbs' engines, and now have added updated saddle tanks courtesy of Canvas Rails / TF Twitch. (Canvas made the original 0-4-0 design where the tank originated, which TF Twitch recreated, this leading to the adding of it to this 0-6-0.) Oh, and by the way: the gears on the steamer are standing in for six Big Ben Bricks medium steam engine drivers. (four flanged, two blind) The rear of the engine features warp-around stripe design. The number of the engine goes on the four studs, while BRS goes on the three studs. The diesel was designed by Flickr member "RIZING!" and modified by me to be little taller and come in tan. I also removed some parts that are unavailable in black. The diesel could be motorized with either 9V or PF motors and associated items. Also, I must say I really like the stairs at both ends of the engine that RIZING! designed. The rear of the switcher now has three tail-lights. The number of the engine goes on the four studs, while the three studs is reserved for the letters BRS. I will be building these locos sometime early next year.
There were some fairly odd looking locos at work on the timber tramways here in New Zealand. Many were built in the tramway workshops using a boiler from here and a stationary steam engine from there. Chain drive over big coarse spockets made the wheels turn so they were very simple locomotives indeed. Generally they only travelled at walking speed, but could haul a big load over the rough and ready light trackwork used on the logging tramways. I put together this little loco over the course of an afternoon. At the moment it's unpowered, but soon I'm going to have a bit of a mess about and put a motor in it. In case anyone is wondering the tyre on the top of the chimney is meant to be the primitive type of spark arrestor that was commonly used on these locos.
