This is definitely my greatest train creation yet.
About this creation
Sit back and relax because I have a little story to tell you. About 1 year and a few months ago I was Google image searching Lego train pictures. That is how I stumbled on MOCpages. A couple days browsing around here without an account, and I was hooked. I begged my mother to let me have an account. She subsided, and here I am today. I started with my favorite area of Lego, Lego trains. Over the year or so, my focus has shifted time and again. Blocktropolis came into being and prospered, recently, a couple friends got me into the futuristic military scene.
Now, this recent week to be exact, I started to revisit my Lego roots. Another couple friends got me into the frame of mind to produce Lego trains again, and here is the product: My greatest train locomotive ever: my Union Pacific MP15 Diesel Locomotive.

A shot of it with my only freight car at the present time. The flatcar with the tractor. Yes I said at the present time. I do plan to make more.

Special thanks to Eric Starr, who reignited my passion for lego trains, gave me the idea, and told me how to get the decals to look good. Also thanks to Dave Sterling, who gave me tips on how to make my engines more realistic.
This is great, with nice detail. Your best train yet, and having seen it in real life(as with many other trains), you mastered the look! If you never would have joined, none of my trains would be posted, along with many of my ships! Anyways, your best engine yet, hope to see more freight cars. My joining celebration will only be in April...
