Dual-Headed #4561

Post by mattman on Wed 15 Jun 2011, 2:03 pm

Ok I promise this is it legowink well it has to be because I'm out of engines :P

This one is pretty much a stock #4561 set - I'll probably leave it as is for the time being just so that I can represent some stock stuff too... and I kind of like the simplicity of it legohappy Only real mod being the 2nd engine (yeah it's powered too).







Only thing I don't like is that the windows on the carriages are pretty messed up legosad but it's not a super common colour (trans-light blue) and pretty exxy to replace the ~40 window pieces in the set. They are waaaayyy beyond buffing it out.

Matt, I think that the best part of that train was the motor.

It's simple - and not particularly realistic, but for some reason I like it. I certainly get why train people wouldn't like it though :P

At least it's a design where the engines aren't terribly integrated so if I really get to dislike it I can repurpose them easily enough while still keeping it built. Given I had to custom order some of the parts (it has several unique/unique colour parts) I'm not really keen on ripping it apart 2 days after building the second engine :P

Well the set was meant to be a futuristic train right? And it was back in the days where detail in LEGO didn't matter, it was more about representing something and using your imagination for the rest.
This isn't a set I own, but I think it's an alright train set. (Came with a lot of track too!)
