BR 01 - 1075
Dear all, for the past month I have been building on and off on this MOC. After being inspired by all the great Lego train builders such as SavatheAggie and Ben Beneke, I wanted to try my hand at building a train as well. This type train is also owned by the dutch steam association SSN and is a BR01-1075 and can be seen running around trainstations in the Netherlands and Germany. Thorsten Benter helped me in attaching rubber rings to the XL-BBB wheels for extra grip. The train is driven by two M-motors in the boiler and the battery pack is inside the tender. The slopes of the boiler containing the two M motors are stacked on a 4x4 stud core, making for a leaner boiler. The scale is 1:45. Kind regards, Teddy BR01-1075:

Edit 6 January 2011:

This movie was shot by my girlfriend her grandmother who was over to celebrate the new year with the family at our house. My girlfriend her grandmother is a huge fan of my Lego creations and she also happens to be very tech savvy. She shot it with her standard photo camera.




Edit October 2011:

Re-geared the two M-Motors in the engine such that the speed generated by the XXL wheels matches the speed of the new 9V Power functions train motor, and added a 9V Power functions train motor under the tender. Result is more speed and more power.

This is the best looking lego train ever! (And yes, I have the Emerald Night). Any chance you have instructions and part list for this? I'd really like to buy it. Well done :)

Absolute great achievement! You managed to build the BR 01 as real as it can gets in Lego. Maybe to get it in serial production by Lego? The Emerald really needs redesign compared with your BR 01. A pleasure for the eye!

Hey Teddy this model is superb. You've made the Emerald Night look amateurish to say the least. The true-to-life gap between the chassis and boiler is to be applauded as it heralds a new standard in steam engine construction. Magnificent!!

I've travelled some times with it and it always impresses me how big it actually is. Keep up the good work!

Thank you for all the nice replies! :) It took me quite some iterations to get the train to its current appearance, so I am very happy you all like it and are so positive. Kind regards, Teddy
