Toy Train . It's a toy made out of toys! This little train is perfect for any Christmas train layout. Tree, presents, and jolly fat man not included. . This is a creation from before I joined MOCpages... at the time I didn't photograph it, but I put it together again recently and took a bunch of pictures. It has a nine-volt motor, and will run on LEGO nine-volt tracks. I made it for a Christmas train layout last year (2009). There are a few more pictures of the overall train, and I'll hush up for once and let you enjoy them. The train cars: The engine. It's kind of the black sheep of the train, since the nine-volt motor means it has a really thick base. I thought the increase in fuctionality was worth the loss of asthetics. The passenger carriage. Nothing much to say here, although it does show my use of old socket joints to connect the cars. The caboose. The first, and best, train car I made. Technique guide: Ah... here's how I attached the wheels and axles. Both forms of clips work equally well for holding the axles in place. Place a plate on top of two clips, rest the axle in the hollow between the clips and the plate, and then attach the train car to the top of the plate. Ta-dah! Be sure to be careful when you remove the wheels and axles from their normal holders, or you may end up short a holder, or an eye. Kids, get your parents to help with that part. As one last note, this technique is a little higher-friction than the standard setup, but not enough to matter on anything this small and light. As always, the technique is free for anyone to use, as long as you remember to credit me for inventing it. Thanks. Thanks for viewing, ratings and comments are highly appreciated.
