BR52 Riga National Railway Museum (with power functions)
My Interpretation of the BR52 which is at the National Railway Museum in Riga as a thank you present for friends who live near there and have been a huge support over the years.
About this creation
Hello everyone. I am happy to present my first MOC in quite some time. It is a present for the kids of friends of mine (all Lego fans) who live only a few hundred meters from the Railway Museum in Riga. They were a huge help and support when I lived in Riga in 2009 and this is a thank you present for them. I had hoped to get this done for Christmas 2012 and 2013 but I didn't manage to finish it until a few weeks ago and it will be on its way to Riga shortly (they have already seen the Pictures and seem pretty happy with it). :-)

I was originaly thinking I could just copy my BR50 in green, but as many of the parts were not available in green most of it ended up completely new. I also added more details as the kids who will be receiving this are quite a bit older that those who received the last train so it does not have to be quite a sturdy. The new boiler design is unfortnately not as roomy on the inside as the BR50 which meant I went for one L Motor instead of two M Motors. It is a bit slow but it still runs pretty well.

There are many more pictures with a higher Resolution on my Flickr page. As this will hopefully not be my last train I would be happy to receive any comments either here or on Flickr.

Quoting Riley Duff I like it, any videos of it running? How much does it weigh engine, tender and all?
Hi Riley, below is a video which I made today. It usually goes a bit quicker but the batteries are almost empty. I am still tweaking it as it had some running issues and was too fragile for the kids that will be receiving it. I am hoping to finally send it off to its new owners later this week so that the parents have time to do a test build before disassembling it and packing it away ready to surprise the kids for Christmas. :-) Not sure about the weight as I donn't have a set of scales in the house but it is pretty light. https://www.flickr.com/photos/40807560@N04/14079509436/

Absolutely beautiful train. It looks fantastic realistic in the absence of bare studs. I'm convinced there are some kids who get excited when they get such a nice train.
