SNCF X3800 "Picasso"
7-wide french railbus with PF and RC.
About this creation
This MOC is made to go with the MegaMOC 2011 of the (fictious) french town of Royville, France 1967.

The model is pretty big compared to the skinny 6-wide Lego City trains. This one is 7-wide and meassures 57 studs long. (Exact 0-scale)








The motorization is PF with RC. The low riding railbus leaves only one plate of air free over the track.
Below are some photos of the turning bogies.



There is no friction, and the train goes like a rocket. It can only negotiate the switches when the lever is pointing AWAY from the curve. -But has otherwise no problems with the sharp Lego-curevs.



-And finally a photo of the real thing;

Hey great job. I love the X3800, when I was smaller it was my favorite train on my grandfather's model train set. I love seeing them in real life from time to time in the french countryside, and it's great to see that it is possible to make it in lego. It's incredible how realistic this model is. Just a huge congratulations :D

Very nice. I've been doing a few trains, but nothing quite so authentic and detailed. Great attention to detail and shape. Like the motor hidden behind the side panels.

Absolutely superb. A very unusual train and I think that's why I like it so much. You have done a fantastic job with this one.

Excellent work ! One of those tourist trains use to have its terminal just next to the factory where I work. Unluckily they replaced it by a more recent one that doesn't look good at all.
