General Information: This is my Lego 4-4-2 Atlantic locomotive. It can be customized to be most colors, depending on taste, and the coach car can also be customized. It is 436 bricks. The tender is 48 bricks, and the actual locomotive is 219 bricks. The coach car is 152 bricks. The rest is from the minifigures. I created it with the Lego Digital Designer. I feel like it would be a good locomotive for people ages +12. And I could build this, but it would require taking apart another locomotive that I am quite fond of.
History: The 4-4-2 Atlantic- though also called the Milwaukee, It was built for pulling crack flyers made of wood quickly across long flat sections of track. It was essentially a 4-4-0 with a trailing truck added for a larger, deeper firebox. It was used by the Milwaukee Road for their Hiawatha passenger train. I have also heard that one clocked a speed record of 127.1 miles per hour in 1905.
