Steam Train
About this creation
All abooooard! This steam train was made entirely with basic shapes in primary colors, to look as "LEGOish" as possible. It's about 2 feet long and contains over 2500 LEGO pieces. I wore a vest and pocketwatch as I built this.

LEGO Steam Train Engine Locomotive Lionel by artist Sean Kenney.  See this LEGO train on NBC's '30 Rock' starring Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin.

how was it like to build for a tv show? are you a person that makes them normally or did you just get asked and how (was it email?) this is a amazing thing for you to do this! P.S looks like one of those wooden trains you would get at a farners market! very creative!you are a dime a dozen

Quoting Dennis Price I admit I almost cried that she dropped it. Were those part of the actual building instructions Jack is seen holding?
Don't worry... I made 8 of these trains. The one in the close-up shots is glued and good for swinging around. The others were unglued and used for the background on the other tables... So we let her drop one of those. (She actually did drop it at one point as she was swinging it around. I had to run in and build it back into a better "broken" state in about 30 seconds. Dang!) And no, I didn't make building instructions... We just took some photos of the train and put them onto that flyer.

I love that show, and when I watched it tonight (I tivo it and watch on the weekend) I was not only pleasantly surprised but also laughing hysterically at how it was "used" by Liz Lemon. I admit I almost cried that she dropped it. Were those part of the actual building instructions Jack is seen holding?

Quoting Nate . Nice train, thats really cool that you built it for a T.V show did you get to meet the cast?
Yes ... it turns out they film the show two doors down from my LEGO studio. So I was on the set for about 10 hours of filming that day, helping with the props and things. I got to meet Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, and Steve Buscemi (who directed the episode). They were all very nice! Alec Baldwin actually wanted to meet me to have a LEGO portrait done! :)

Love it! It does have a Lego-ish aura to it, don't it? It's very realistic, and i especially like the yellow details and the blue pump. Why don't you have a go at making a replica of the steam train, 'Sir Nigel Grisley'? P.S: The wheels can't be round, apple, this train is designed to be fully made out of basic parts.

It's refreshingly simple and colorful, it put a smile on my face when I saw it. As a fellow builder, I can many times get mesmerized by greebles, SNOT, and other complicated techniques. It's just great to get away from Sci-Fi, complicated builds, and drab bley and grey color schemes for a few minutes. Thanks for piqueing my nostaligia, Will

I really appreciate it when someone is able to use basic colors and pieces to create something to neat. Pocket-watch eh? Fun :)

I think you may have run out of pieces or something, but you neglected to add a tender.
