Like a LEGO Creator set, each locomotive must be built separately. In other words, one of the three locomotives can be built from one set. If three copies of this set are purchased, then all builds may be built simultaneously.
What inspired this project:
On August 13th, I looked on the LEGO Online Shop at the LEGO Creator sets. Browsing these cool and unique sets inspired me to build a 3-in-1 train set compatible with the traditional LEGO train tracks. After all, there hasn't been a LEGO train set with other build options released in years! And so, I got to work, and I finished building all the locomotives on August 14th. I do hope you enjoy these models. 😀
This project is 353 pieces. The steam locomotive, the main build, uses all of the pieces. Meanwhile, the switching locomotive is 241 pieces, and the trolley with the mini station is 226 pieces. The steam locomotive has small, working coupling rods. A small interior is beheld inside the cab, and there is a bit of coal detailing in the tender. 🚂
The switching locomotive has swiveling trucks, exhausts and lighting on the snoot, and a lifting roof to reveal the interior cab details. Lastly, the trolley has a small interior for a driver and room for maybe three passengers. The roof of the trolley can lift up to reveal the inside... Hmm, I think I see a pattern here... Anyway, there is also a small station platform which includes one seat, one lamp, and one umbrella for shading. 🚅
Have a great day, everyone, and thank you so much for viewing this project! If you have any suggestions for another project, or if you think something needs to be corrected in this project, please let me know in the comments section. I just want to let you know is that I will be gone from December 1st to December 24th. I'll be back on Christmas Day! Goodbye for now, everyone, and take care! :-D Project built by Joseph cheeseinthepie on August 13th, 2019. Submitted on November 27th, 2019.
