2-6-0 Mogul
About this creation
After making several European locomotives I decided to try building some more American engines. The 2-6-0 Moguls were built as early as 1850's through the 1860's and was meant to replace the American type 4-4-0, they were primarily used on short lines due to it's lightweight. They originally had rigid piloting truck and did not swing freely causing many derailments which in turn his many railroads to avoid purchasing the Mogul, this was later fixed. They were however better in terms of tractive effort than the 4-4-0 as well as greater adhesion than the 4-6-0.

My MOC shows the elegant wood cab and mirrored grey Russia Iron boiler jacket. I'm quite pleased with my steam and sand dome technique using BBB wheels (I'll post that at some point) as well as the stacked wood in the tender using technic chain. The pilot truck is not pivoted so it can't negotiate curves but thats fine because I don't have a layout to run it on. It's more for display. ;)

Hello! I'm a big fan of yours, and I was wondering, you said you don't make instructions, but could you disassemble one of your trains in large sections? Anyway, nice locomotive. One of my favorite builders.

Quoting Alex McKenna Fantastic. I like the colors, especially the boiler. It is a nice change from the regular black. The stacked wood technique is great. I didn't know they had chains in that color. Is it powered? I also like the cow catcher at the front. I don't think I have seen that done with tiles before, and it doesn't look bulky which is amazing. Right, now I am going to take a few minutes to go through the pictures again. Great work!
Thank you. Yes I was getting tired of the black color scheme I thought I'd try grey this time, unfortunately it's not powered. I couldn't find a place to fit a 9v motor which is all I have at the moment. But I'm glad you like it.
