A small industrial switcher used by my layout-to-be's coal company.
About this creation
This is a scale model of an industrial switcher, where 1 stud's width on the model is equal to 15 scale inches. Using this scale, the switcher is 25 feet long, approximately 10 feet wide, and 13.75 feet high (from the rails to the peak of the roof) At this scale, a minifig is almost exactly 6 feet tall, so I feel that I've managed to make a car I can confidently call "minifig scale." I had to do a few part modifications to make the model work, cutting down the jail door that covers the grille on front and cutting down the brackets on the sides so the wheels wouldn't rub. I'm not quite happy with how the horn is attached, and this might require still more part modification. The tail light fixture is temporary, but will have to do for now. All that remains now is to add decals for my layout's coal mining company.
