A good friend of mine inspired me to build this loco after showing me a hover train from a TV show he watches. I changed it to red and then ran with the idea from futuristic hover mono-rail to 1930's streamlined Pacific-type steam loco. Other than the hover train from Legend of Korra, this model is not based on any specific prototype, though it bears resemblance to the South Australian Railway 520 class 4-8-4, and the Pennsylvania Railroad T1 Duplex type.
This 4-6-2 engine uses the same basic design for the tender as my Southern Pacific 4-8-4 Daylight loco. The railroad name on the tender is supposed to be "Legoredo North-Western", while the number of the loco is 4982, which goes on the cab sides.
The basis for the model's name is that if this engine were a Lego set (like the Emerald Night engine from 2009) it would be named something similar, such as the Ruby Sunset... this name is of the train it pulls and the engine itself, kinda like the Flying Scotsman.
