Railroad MOW work train with ALCO RSD-12 diesel loco - real life MOC
This Maintenance of Way train is ready to make tracks! (literally!)
About this creation
This train consists of a ALCO diesel locomotive (specifically a RSD-12 type) and five cars:
- a (working!) crane car
- depressed-center rail wagon
- a (working!) ballast hopper
- caboose

The model features several neat printed pieces found in several Juniors sets and six mini figures, including four generic track workers, one track boss / conductor and the locomotive engineer.



This model was originally a ALCO MRS-1 built by Anthony Sava, but has been so severely modified that it no longer looks like the prototype loco. So I went searching And found another ALCO locomotive, a RSD-12 that looks like my loco. Both my model and the prototype have the six wheels, and the same basic hood and cab design.



The long hood of the loco has been designated the rear with a double red light.



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



I originally meant for the crane to have ropes to move the boom, but it got confusing on which rope went where so for now it's moved by the H.O.G. (Hand Of God) method.



The crane can spin around in 360 degrees and lift anywhere up to 90 degrees straight up. (Their is a double set of pins keeping the boom from going too low, as well.) Here we see how the crane is hooked up to the depressed center flatcar most of the time.



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



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 caboose features two ladders (one per side) and more of those fancy printed 2 x 4 tiles.



The mini-figures seen above are stationed on the MOW train.
