General Motors Aerotrain
This model was delveloped not by me, but by a Brickshelf user. I recreated it in LDD from three pictures. LXF included.
About this creation
The Aerotrain was a 1950's failed expiremental General Motors product. It had a severly underpowered engine, used hard-riding bus bodies for cars, and had problems with matinence. Only two were ever made, and the Rock Island Rairload bought them in the mid '50's and used until 1966. One loco and two cars were given to Green Bay Wisconsin's National Railorad museum, while the other engine (and two cars) were given to the Museum of Transportation in Saint Louis, Missouri, where they reside today.



The rear of the train. The windscreen is supposed to be a "Red Windscreen 2 x 6 x 2 Train with Trans-Clear Glass" but LDD doesn't have that piece... yet.




Side view. I used SNOT to hold the diagonal windows & front slopes in place. other than that, it's pretty straight-forward. Also, If you replace the front bogie, you can make this engine 9V compatible.


Enjoy!
