I posted the digital model of this before, but now I've finally finished it in the brick!



This was a pretty massive undertaking, as it consists of six separate models: a locomotive, three ammonia tankers and two barrier wagons.

It's powered by two Circuit Cubes motors, although as yet they're untested because I barely have enough track to hold this lot.

Here's a closer look at everything individually:






There are more photos on flickr - the photos above are linked.

This is my last train for the foreseeable future, going to focus on city building and having somewhere to actually run the trains!

It looks absolutely brilliant Tom.  You need to setup an attic city with lots of track for that.  I love the old Iarnród Éireann styling.  Memories of train trips to Dublin, sitting on bags as no room anywhere.

City construction is starting soon! I've cleared the tables and laid out a couple of the buildings. Most of it needs to be raised up by a height of about 6 bricks though, so I need to make a couple of wooden platforms.

Fantastic and a major addition to a train layout ,a big industrial area will be needed to offload chemical cargo

Great work Tom. Engine is top class and the front design looks like the real thing. 7 wide trains look the business.

You have 2trains if needed for the Raheny display? I'm thinking train for this if it gets a thumbs up!

Yeah, although this one needs a couple of tweaks to get it running properly - the motor is a bit weak.
