EMD SD40-2 BNSF 1:16
1:16 scaled Lego SD40-2 Diesel electric locomotive.
About this creation


After months of building it is finally finished, my first big train scale build!

The EMD SD40-2 was build from the early seventies until late eighties and has been one of the most succesful locomotive designs for freight purposes. This BNSF (Burlington North Sante Fe) example is still in active service, like many others of the almost 4000 build. It has about 3000 hp, and can be remotely controlled.


The model is scaled 1:16, 1.31 meters long, 24 studs wide, and counts approx. 20.000 bricks. It is highly detailled inside and outside.

This is also a step into something special. Together with Dennis Bosman I started work on a new Nostarch Press title for 2015 with the working title: 'The Art of Lego Scale Modeling'.
More news on this will follow in time, but it will be a luxury book, featuring top notch Lego creations, where many are shot (and even build) exclusivly for the book. This locomotive can also be seen in all detail in this new release as well.

If you can't wait then there is a good chance you can see it at the Legoworld 2014 show in The Netherlands.

Wow, just incredible! I've actually just started doing the same thing. I just finished the Lego Santa Fe at twice the size.

This is incredible! I have seen a lot of people build trains smaller then Standard LEGO scale, but never bigger. Great job!

There are a few detail pics on my Flickr page on the trucks. I won't post more, as this locomotive will be an exclusive feature in a new book from Nostarch publishing. Use your own creativity and browse the web for detail. It took me several months :-)

Bricksonwheels, would you have any objections to contacting me at my personal email address so I could ask a few details of this build. I don't want to seem like I am stealing your idea, but I really want to build one of these myself. There are a few key areas that I need a bit of info on. If you don't have any dramas with this, zap me an email to anthonyakatrainz@hotmail.com Hope to hear from you soon so I can build my own.

You are a god, Bricksonwheels! I'm a train lover myself, and this looks just like the real thing. I'd like to see the trucks or bogies, the cab interior, and the prime mover along with the rest of the stuff underneath the body.

Any chance of releasing some detail photos showing how you made it? The bulk on top I can kind of figure out, but Im lost for the wheels and trucks/bogies.

Thnx all, and no, I dont have a partlist or anything on paper. It came all from my head and a pile of 20000 bricks.

You wouldn't happen to have a plan and a parts list for this would you? I would love to build my own, but wouldn't know where to start, especially on something this big.

Amazing Engine! The size alone is not essential for the model's quality, but here it seems that the amount of details has followed. Excellent Model! Btw, I wonder what kind of wheels suits a beast like this?

Beautiful work! I always love seeing MOCs done on this kind of scale, as it allows for a level of realism smaller versions simply can't achieve. Do you have any additional pictures posted elsewhere? I'd love to see some close ups and various angles. Meanwhile, nicely done!

Wow. Never seen an engine in this scale, not even close. Biggest train engine on MOCPages maybe? Probably? Looks amazing, very well done. Hope we get more pictures soon!
