GWR Class 5700 Pannier Tank
About this creation
While working on another project which is only now half done I found out that I'll need to buy more bricks and special parts to complete it. So I decided to take a break and work on somthing small in the mean time. I have always liked small European shunting engines and aside from the Danish 0-6-0T I recently built I have also liked the Great Western Railways 0-6-0 pannier tank engines. I suppose it has somthing to do with watching the character "Duck" on Thomas the Tank Engine when I was young, but I also find them very lovely designed engines.

This particular class was called the class 5700 and was the most celebrated and well-loved of all the Great Western locomotive classes. Built between 1929 to 1950 some 863 were built making them the second most produced British class locomotive.

Although I originaly wanted to build it in GWR green I didn't have enough dark or regular green, so I decided to built it in the BR (British Railways) black livery (sorry no crest either). I had to do some fenessing to get the side rods to clear the footplate but overall I think it came out nicely and should make a nice addition to my shelve to railway stuff.

MAN!!! This is excellent!!! I like how you built the model! Especially the side tanks with curved edges! With additional steam / brake pipes! I couldn't built as good as you! I've built a GWR 14xx(Oliver the Great Western engine)using LDD on computer! But still you are great! Long live the GWR!!!

Quoting Jasper Schouterden Did you cut up a LEGO chain for that?
Yes I did. I only cut LEGO parts like chains and Technic tubing or LEGO peices that have broken and can be modified. I take them off when I enter a MOC in a contest.

The best pannier tank EVER! This is my favorite branch line engine. I especially like the buffer beam. Did you cut up a LEGO chain for that?

Quoting Max Brayne I particularly like how you have done the funnel, what part have you used under the wheel?
Thanks but I don't quite understand what piece your talking about.

This is a fab model! It looks just like the one that was at my local preserved railway (I think its gone back home now). I was thinking if I ever whent to 8 wide I would build something like this, but a part of me still feels its cheating! :P I particularly like how you have done the funnel, what part have you used under the wheel? I hope this will not be your last British build.

Absolutely outstanding model. I was considering building one of these, but it wouldn't be as good as this! You got the shape just right, and there's tons of detail packed into it.
