Norfolk & Western A-type engine
First moc I've considered worthwhile to share. Built using 12xBig Ben drivers and a lot of black bricks.
About this creation

Norfolk & Western 'A' type locomotive

The engine is a semi-scale attempt to compromise between the Big Ben brick driver size, the size and layout of the real engine and the operational requirements to work on a 9v layout with curves and points (switches to any US readers :) ) Feel free to feedback, I probably won't make any changes to it though, I know they were really all black but I used some grey to give the eye a bit of a break and because I'd run out of black.






Uses a 9v light for the pilot headlight, one in the tender for the tail light and 2 in the cab to provide a nice 'firebox glow'.









There is a minifig driver and fireman in the cab.




The original engine was articulated and so is this to run round lego 9v tracks. No - the originals didn't swing out so much at the cab but at least it works on lego tracks.



Top marks to Jim :), I did model this on images of N&W #1218, but without the later additions also used were images by O Winston Link. NEW IMAGE with the transfers.





Yes, all of the coupling rods, the piston rods and piston/cylinders move the same as on the real engine.

Absolutely stunning! I can only hope that my future locomotives are anywhere near as good as this. Great job! I am looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Jackson: you mean "words" right? Anyways, this is amazing. Out of 100 possible points this would be about a 98. Amazing job.
