Steam is hard, let’s go shopping

Cale Leipharts train

Making big LEGO steam engines that run is hard work. LEGO train track has very sharp curves which mean all sorts of clever trickery is required to make a steam train even get around it without looking totally stupid. Fortunately Cale Leiphart is quite an expert in it and shows off a lovely 4-4-0 locomotive (that’s eight wheels) from the Maryland & Pennsylvania railway. The presentation in front of the Twin Cities LEGO Train Club’s layout is pretty snazzy too.

    4-4-0′s are my favourite locos. I love the wild west look of them. This is one of the best I’ve seen in Lego. Great job.
