    Hi peeps!

    I'm new here in this forum, so let I first introduce myself.
    I'm Rene Kok, a 39 year old, from the Netherlands.
    Completly hooked to steamlocomotives. From geared ones to the biggies as UP Challengers and Big Boys.

    My problem/question:
    I build steamlocomotive's out of Lego. My models are completly functional. I build my own compressed air engines out of Lego.

    Building scale is around 1:24

    I am in despirit need of good detailed drawings of UP Challengers and Big Boys.

    Can anyone tell me, where I can obtain/order sutch drawings.

    I'm especialy intrested in the dimensions of the hinges that make these locos articulated.

    Friendly greetings from the Netherlands:

    René Kok

    Lego

    I'm sure you're already aware of the Lego Trains that run on 4.5/9/12V power packs, and include a couple of Lego Steam engines, several of the 4-4-0 engines coulld be bashed into a Big Boy or a Challenger

    if you havent heard of them:

    Thnx for you reaction..

    I'm aware of the engines that Lego can deliver...

    I'm building my own engines. Those are driven by selfmade pneumatic engines. We call those "My Own Creations, MOCs"

    Here is a picture of one of my models:
