About this creation
My first train MOC which I later duplicated



Enlarge image
   I've made recent modifications to the model. I raised the hood by 2 plates and lowered the cab by one so the cab is now flush with the hood. I aslo added a train weight for traction.

   I swapped the slopes over the windscreen with stacked plates and tile to keep it more in scale.

   A close up of my snotted windshield. Its build from a 1x1 brick with a 1x1 modified brick with studs on fours sides on top. The two panels snot to the sides.

   Swapped out the Nuclear fallout tiles for the more "fan-ish" ones seen here



Enlarge image
   Beefed up the tanks to something a little larger and more to scale

   Rebuilt the rear end to more accurately depict the original

   Twins. With my monstrous cat "Hal"

   Geting the stacked effect of the cow catcher took some brain working. It uses 4 1x2/1x4 brackets and a 1x2 modified plate with offset



Enlarge image
   I removed on of the brackets for clarity. The coupler comes out between the the tiles at the right height. The catcher clears all points and crossings. It even squeezes into the train shed.

   Better look at build

   Duplicated the trucks to as closely match the motor as possible.
