The Tequila Sunrise is a fully track compatible Hudson Class (4-6-4) steamer with Henry Dreyfuss inspired streamlining. I say inspired because these locomotives, designed exclusively for the New York Central lines for their 20th Century Limited, never came in yellow. But not all the parts I needed came in grey, and I didn't have a yellow locomotive yet. I think it turned out pretty nifty.
It's name, the 'Tequila Sunrise', comes from the fact that it's blindingly yellow and my locomotive will be paired with Santa Fe Super Chief Pullman cars, at least till I can afford to make matching passenger cars. Plus I like the play on meaning (a Tequila Sunrise is an orange juice based alcoholic beverage).
like to build this train. Can you please email me the directions? Is this something that I can load into the lego 3d creator? Thanks!! Awesome TRAIN!!!!
This locomotive cannot be built in LEGO 3D creator for the simple fact it uses custom train wheels not made by LEGO. Outside of that, many of the parts are not being offered by LEGO PaB and thus are not in the available part pallet.
