LNER A3 - Emerald Night rebuild

So I've been working on rebuilding the Emerald Night to look more like the prototype - the Flying Scotsman. I know it's not 100% right, but, but my main aim was to use 100% Lego and reuse some of the Emerald Night's parts, otherwise I'd have opted for BBB XL drivers. The tender is a redesign of Carl Greatrix's A4 and A3 tender.


The model is engine driven and uses an XL motor placed in the cab with the same transmission gear as the Emerald Night. battery and receiver are placed in the tender.

The pistons clear the leading wheels nicely and the drivetrain works fine - I have built the chassis and part of the footplate (including the cylinders) so I know it does :)
