Lego Pannier Tank Engine (and truck) by Kumata Lego Pannier Tank Engine (and truck) by Kumata
A Lego 'Pannier Tank' steam engine of my own design, and a GWR-style coal truck too. I tried my best to build something that both looked as realistic as possible AND was compatible with regular Lego train systems (hence the low buffers to match the height of other trains' couplings, and tall cab to allow minifigs to stand inside).

Being a huge fan of steam railways this is my favourite thing I have ever built. Oh and that number '1' on the sides means that this is the first of many. Long-term I plan to build an entire Lego railway layout but for now I'm having fun trying to create specific types of engines and rolling stock.

Have you thought of joining Lego forums? You are a great Lego builder and your engines look nice!

Thanks! Not really no, I'm more of a lurker than a poster when it comes to forum discussions =P

The railtracks looks like non standard ones or these from some special set?

Actually it's just the standard track pieces with brown parts on top =)

If I were you, I would submit this to Lego CUUSOO if you have not done so already.

I'm not sure, trains don't seem to get a great deal of support on CUUSOO...

does it "like" shunting? With it's longer wheelbase, does it derail on "S" bends common in yards? I'd love to see a video of those siderods going 'round!

The wheelbase happily fits standard Lego curve pieces but I haven't tested it out on more complex bends (possible with the flexible track pieces) - mainly because my railway's still being built! :D

No. 1 enjoys all kinds of jobs since it's the only engine currently present to perform any =P
