It's inspired by the Vossloh G2000 BB. Again, I chose this purely because I thought it looked like a cool train. I've not got the livery exactly correct, and some of the details are"approximate". But it seems to work.
I'm still building Lego City style, 6 studs wide.
It's the same length as the Lego Maersk.
It's unpowered at the moment, but it would take a power functions set up. It would however loose some of the look on the sides.
it looks great, and has lots of details, taking it up to 8' would solve many problems, you would nt loose looks when powered, as it gives you more space, it scales better with figs, and trucks, it generally looks better, and feels better too, you should look up TF TWITCH that comments me, he has interesting ways to power trains in unconventional ways, his techniques saves a lot of parts and space, bravo!
Hey:), I really like all your train models! This one has a really nice color scheme again and just looks "right". Great stuff! It's very inspirational looking at your models, as I would like to build some trains again, too. It has been a while. I'll try to make my trains 8-wide, though, as my semi trucks usually are 7-wide (to keep the difference, and make a semi loaded on a freight train look nice). That'll be a challenge, as I have never attempted that before and the models seem to get massiv and part-consuming in 8-wide. Anyways, I'm glad I found your site!
