Union Pacific MP15 Diesel Locomotive
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.

The actual locomotive. I used this photo to build the MOC.

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.



Another shot with the flatcar.



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.

Quoting Rahkshi Poopi Are these UP MP15s still in service today?
Yes, I've seen several. They mostly do switch duties and transfer runs.

Very nice build, I too have been starting to get back into the train building, as I have had to take some time off sadly. I hope as I do I can put out great works likes this. GO PACK GO

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...

ASTOUNDING! Great attention to detail. It looks just like the real thing, and I agree, this is your greatest engine yet. I like the decals ; ) Great job and keep up the good work!
