About this creation
Custom LEGO Norfolk Southern GM EMD SD80 Diesel Electric Engine Locomotive. Built from over 510 pieces.
The decals alone took several hours to create and get them just right. It is designed to be a model, but it can be pushed around the track without any worry of de-railment. Though it has three axles per truck, the third axle 'floats' and will shift left or right as it goes into a turn.
Many hours of work were put into making this the best possible model. It is quite large, at just over 48 studs long and 6 studs wide. As in the LEGO fashion, the cab roof is removable to show the operator chair, brake, throttle, and other controls.
This is too cool. Only thing is there is no SD80 Class. There is only the SD80MAC Class and they are numbered from 7200-7216 on the NS Roster.

This is fantastic, Scott! The hours you spent working on the decals really paid off, they make the MOC in my opinion. I'd love to get a pair of them if I ever make a Norfolk and Southern locomotive. Keep up the great models!
