141 R 840 Mikado Steamtrain
About this creation
The 141 R Steamtrain : The classic 2-8-2 "Mikado" steam locomotive was one of a series of 1340 engines, of which only twelve have been preserved today.



Only six in working order today of which the 141 R 840 in France.



Fan of this 141R locomotive, and especially the 840 with his "dress" black and his two thin yellow line (built at Baldwin Locomotive Works to Philadelphie), I wanted to build, but at the scale of the track gauge LEGO®.

First step: the diagram

And the result : a locomotive of 9 studs wide

This is maybe one of the, if not the best, LEGO minifig sized steamengines I ever come across. It is brilliantly shaped and and the level of detailing is amazing. This account is obviously not active any more, but it`s great that the content is still accessible. Congrats on a well deserved MOTD!

Superb effort! This is the best LEGO steam locomotive I have seen so far. I especially like what you have done with the cylinders and rods. Considering that this was posted nearly two years ago, I wondering if you have made any changes in that time. Also, how is the Garrat coming along?

Your use of small parts and your techniques are truly inspirational. I am not even going to attempt to pick out any favorite parts on this train as every time I look I see something new. Thanks for sharing this with us!

Congratulations to a fantastic steam engine. The model is very impressive and you have really caught the characteristics of French steam locomotives. I particularly like the pistons and the driving mechanism. Your method of creating the round shape of the boiler is new to me - have you found a stable way to connect the tiles here. Thanks also for the extra pictures published on FreeLUG.

WOW the best steam engine I´ve seen here! So is it 8 or even 9 or 10 studs wide? My guess is 8 or/and 9 studs... The amount of detail is astounding, it almost doesn´t look like Lego anymore and I mean this in a VERY positive way. It looks really powerful, too - like a beast. Perfect setting/mise en scène together with the signal house! So this is my favorite Lego steam engine so far, and I think it´ll stay like that for a looooong time. Unless you make up an even more impressive one... Steffen
