Dash to the finish

Scott Wardlaws UP

I never expected to see the nose of a GE Dash-9 done well in LEGO. The double down slope is one of the most difficult shapes to achieve. By making clever use of a triangular flag Scott Wardlaw has finally pulled it off in this lovely eight-wide version of the locomotive. Seeing solutions like this is one big reason I love LEGO trains.

    I’ve been thinking about using the triangular flag to do this, but not exactly the same. Mind you I’m not sure my method would work. Nice one Scott

    I’m more of a LEGO robot guy myself, but this sure makes me want to start trying my hand at trains. Good stuff.

    The triangular flag solution is indeed very nice. I can’t get over the fact of how wide the long hood is though. Building a six-wide hood on an eight-wide locomotive completely defeats the purpose of scaling up the train to eight wide for better proportions.
