Yellow and black MOW work train with 2-6-0+0-6-2 Garratt steam loco
This model is finally ready to roll!
About this creation
This train consists of a 2-6-0+0-6-2 Double Mogul (Garratt-type) steam locomotive and five cars:
- a (working!) crane car
- depressed-center rail wagon
- a (working!) ballast hopper
- tool / crew car
- caboose

This train is easily expandable using official models, such as the backhoe digger on a flatcar from set 60098, and / or the road-n-rail truck and it's depressed center wagon from set 3677.

Several prints are missing from these train cars, including two of this www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=87079pb40... and four of these www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=2431p02#T=C and two of this one, all on the crane car: www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=87079pb22... (Two of that last print also go on the baggage / tool car as well.)



The engine seen here pulls the Maintenance of Way train. This steam locomotive is a 2-6-0+0-6-2 Double Mogul (Garratt-type) steam engine. It was originally designed by Anthony Sava but with fake pistons and with small-size friction bearing wheels. I added working pistons and Big Ben Bricks medium flanged and blind drivers wheels as seen here at Ben's website: www.bigbenbricks.com/products/products.html In my model, gear wheels are used as stand in for the custom wheels that are not in LDD. The engine is available for purchase at Mr Sava's Bricklink store here: store.bricklink.com/AggieSava&itemID=16882527#/shop?o=



The engine needs printed letter tiles with the railroad's initials "BRS" on the side of the boiler, while "3103" goes on the sides of the 1 x 4 bricks with side studs, placed on the four corners of the model near the pistons.



Even with the added pistons, the engine easily can go around corners and switches.



This model was inspired by a coal hopper on an older website called LGauge .com. I tunrned the old finger hinges into new pin-orientated ones and colored the car yellow to match the MOW paint scheme.



The hopper's bottom door open and can dumpy 1 x 1 round plates / bricks onto the tracks for ballast.



The rail-carrying depressed-center wagon has brick-built arms to secure the cargo of railroad track in place.



This stream crane model was heavily inspired by Whoward69's instructions for a set of crane and match truck train cars. I modified the original model (seen here: www.flickr.com/photos/whoward69/albums/72157623449837420 ) The crane car can move side to side or up and down with two sets of ropes to either raise / lower the hook or operate the boom.



Please NOTE: I don't have the exact measurements for the two strings as they wasn't listed in said instructions. However, I think two of this string here should be long enough: www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=x77ac50#T=C



This car is the tool car, carrying spikes, tie plates and track worker tools. (it really is empty)



The car features two opening side doors, allowing for quick access to the inside.



The caboose should feature printed letter tiles with the railroad's initials "BRS" on the middle of the car below the windows.
