0-6-0 A1X Terrier

Would have loved to have built this using dark tan rather than reddish brown, but as so often the case, parts not available in the right colour, so reddish brown it is.

The real proto of this is quite tiny in comparison to other 0-6-0's so it was quite important to me to get this visually smaller than other engines I have built.

It does fit a minifig in the cab, just!.....hence the jumper plate in the cab floor for the drivers positioning.

One of my smallest builds and possibly biggest nightmare for 1/4 and 1/2 plate offsets within the chassis and running boards. There's not one main strong section to this, (especially in the chassis frame as I was anal enough to put the split frames in) but several small strong sections that all pull together with each other making the finished build sturdy enough and a great runner.

Obviously no power for it, making it usable with any LEGO train power format by being pushed or pulled by powered rollingstock from 4.5v through to PF.

This will be on show (and running) along with all my other engines and rolling stock, hopefully together with my full running display / layout (looking 95% possible at this point in time) at The Lego Show in Manchester next week.
