Built the green one first and wasn't happy with the nose. Tried a different front end on the grey one and whole engine ended up one stud shorter. The green one's nose is not curved enough but I think the grey one is a bit better. Both engines are fitted with power functions in the tender and are more than capable of pulling my cream carriages(had to change the rubbers on the wheels though). I will put a video on you tube when I next get a chance(same title) The battery box is switched on with the "water cap" at the rear of the tender and you can also see if its swiched on or not via the transparent tile just behind it. The pictures are a bit dark as they are from my phone

This is so much better than any of my trains! Have they ever been in a Lego show? If so, which one?

Awesome! I love how not a stud is showing, it gives it a realistic, smooth look. Both are great, it is true I prefer the grey one's nose. Could you give any indication of where you got the parts? I plan on making an engine myself, but desperately need to update my inventory. Any indications would be great. Thanks!

WOW!!! What an amazing model!! I've tried it myself but ended up back in the bucket of Lego. Any possibilities of instructions that one can buy from you?

These are beautiful. The curved nose of the grey one looks absolutely spot on. Really like the use of the 1x1 slopes around the top of the tender too, really gives it the proper shape. Great job, 5 star!

Quoting Andy Collings I have been searching for these trains for years: no one else i have seen has managed to do a decent A4, but you have managed it in spades! Hats off to you sir

Quoting james briars o...m...g that is truly amazing im rubbish at steam engines can you give me any tips
First of all, thanks for the comments. As for building tips, study every little detail of the subject you want to build, as sometimes a tiny bit of good detailing can make an average model look good. Also take the time to work on each section of a model to get it just right, take more than 1 attempt, and try building a section a completely different way to see which way looks the best. It may be expensive but try to have as much lego at your disposal as possible as you may not even end up using the parts you thought you would in the first place. These A4 steam trains are the first models I have build using modified lego parts eg. on the side skirts I have had to trim down a 3 x 12 wedge plate on each side to make it a 2 x 12 wedge plate, some people may frown upon doing that, and I used to be one, but I couldn't get the desired effect with any other part. So what I'm saying is, if you wish, you could also try modifying the occasional part to enhance your models. Anyway hope to see some of your cracking steam engines on here in the near future.

There are a lot of boring train builds out there. This is not one of them. Truly amazing. The detail, nerdiness, playability level is excellent. By the way good call on the nose, the new one is better.
