4-4-0 "American" Steam Engine - wood burner - TF Twitch inspired
Okay, so TF twitch asked me take a look at his Humble Sapphire-style 4-4-0 locomotive, the Tempered Stallion. I then put it side by side with my 4-4-0 to compare notes. This is the result! LDD file included!
About this creation
I liked his engine's boiler but I wasn't sure on how I felt about the 5 wide firebox. Aso, the boiler was like the Toy Story 3 train with it's sideways building of the boiler, which I had in real life in the past and wasn't very stable no matter what I did to it. So I substituted the tried-and-true Constitution Train Chase boiler instead.

The gold parts would have been very difficult to place and keep there in real life. I also fixed the magnetic coupler: the version originally used was the original 2006-2009 variety which were replaced in 2009 / 2010. (Please see here for a picture of the different coupler types: alpha.bricklink.com/pages/clone/catalogitem.page?P=91968c... )

The pistons also were a problem with the connection to the engine from Toy Story 3 being rather flimsy and breakable. I replaced them with a Tony Sava inspired design.



The tender is completely new, as the printed 1x4 green bricks wouldn't fit there on the original tender. (this part goes on the cab and tender: alpha.bricklink.com/pages/clone/catalogitem.page?P=3010pb... while the engine's headlight also has this part unprinted: alpha.bricklink.com/pages/clone/catalogitem.page?P=3003pb... ) Also, used these parts for the tender-to-bogie connection: it is a LOT better than a studded turntable: alpha.bricklink.com/pages/clone/catalogitem.page?P=4025#T=C

Overall, this engine was very well constructed, and was thought-out in every way: Twitch even put a shovel in the the cab!

Good work Twitch, I take my engineers cap off in respect!

The color scheme on this one was inspired by set 7597, Toy Story Western Train Chase, with some bits from other builders inserted here and there.
