Old Swaybacked Flatcar
The Republic of Texas
has gotten a Railroad!
Or maybe just railroad equipment,
or just rolling stock.
OK, it's got a piece of rolling stock,
I mean a piece of
heavily USED rolling stock.
All right it's got one
beat-up old used flatcar.
So, are you happy?
I know it's a piece of
rolling cra... er, farmyard fertilizer.
But it's the only thing we got so far,
I mean it may be racked, twisted,
but it's our racked, twisted,
and swaybacked flatcar.
This might be a train
- er, maybe a flatcar vignette!
You can see the racking here:
The torn and twisted planking can be seen here:
I used that trick of using 1x5 technic plates so that I could attach the truck journals.
Note: that this is the only corner with a "good" step.
You can see (in this next pic) that the planking is "suppose" to be torn up and off of the iron subframe, leaving the step far below the the wood deck planks.
NOTE: No glue, tape, rubber bands, string etc.
was used in this MOC.
And no LEGO parts were harmed,
The Home of Republic of Texas Navy in LEGOs is right here on MOCpages.
