Russian L Class Steam Train
Russian L Class steam train. 1-5-0 wheel configuration.
About this creation
This is my first real attempt at a steam train: a Russian L Class 1-5-0 steamer. I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out although I'm sure it has its weak points. Special thanks go to Ben Beneke for his inspirational steam trains which I borrowed techniques aplenty from.

One funny aspect of the prototype is the gap above the middle two wheels. When I was designing it I kept wanting to fill it and had to keep referring to the prototype pictures to remind me it was empty.

For those wondering if this design will corner, the middle two wheels are held on to the front and back two by rubber bands to allow them to move freely while the train navigates curves.
