B&O #25 "William Mason"
About this creation
Hey kids! It's time for another 4-4-0 "American"! This one being a real locomotive, Baltimore and Ohio #25 "William Mason. She was built in 1856 by Mason Locomotive Works in Taunton, Massachusetts. She is one of the oldest still opperating steam locomotives in the United States and has starred in a few films, "The Great Locomotive Chase", "Wild Wild West", "Tuck Everlasting", and "Gods and Generals". This beauty is one of my favortie locomotives.

For my MOC I wanted to try and use a different pilot design and after seeing the cowcatcher on SavaTheAggie's 4-4-0 I decided to use LEGO rods and tubes instead of plates this time. I've also stocked up on a lot of dark green pieces (thank you Emerald Night) and also decided on using vinyl stickers for the boiler bands, decorative striping, and steam and sand domes. Also instead of using standard LEGO wheels and hiding them with fake truck frames I made these tender trucks are like the prototype and the axles fit into journal boxes. Overall I think I did a better job on this American and hope to do a dark red version soon.

Sorry fot the quality of the pictures but my room is limited of light. Enjoy!

Quoting Trevor Young Interesting Loco you have in the "Workshop" The tender has some odd shapes.
Thank you, Trevor. It is indeed an oddly shaped locomotive but thankfully it's all finished now. I just need to get off my lazy butt and get it on here. I'm a big procrastinator.

Quoting T. Young You should build more amazing trains. Its been a while since you posted, hasn't it?
Oh yeah. Between a job and other personal things in my life I've had little time for LEGO. But I have something now that's almost done. ;) So check back soon.

Quoting T. Young I always loved old American Steam Locomotives. I don't know why I've never commented here before. And to be honest, your American Locos were very helpful to me while building mine. (No I didn't steal anything)
Why thank you. I can't really stop building 4-4-0's, I think they're such a handsome class of locomotive. I don't care also if you use any of my building techniques. I like it when people use my MOC's as a guide. I'd have a problem if it was a 100% copy. haha

Quoting Chris lopo IT'S!!!IT'S!!! AMAZING!!!!! some times i wish i was that good at lego locos. i would be if i had better parts but still its awesome you got to make instructions of some of your locos such as your 4-4-0s. not to be picky or to mean or any of that at all it just its to good of a moc to not be powered to run on a lego layout. shoot you should try looking into working for lego as a designer because i see a lot of talent in you. i would definitely send a few pics to lego.and trust me you probably have more talent then the designer that made the emerald night!!! and im not trying to afend any lego designer's who read this.my rating for this moc 100/5!!! or MORE!!
Sorry for the late reply, thank you very much for your kind words. I don't think I'm good enough for LEGO but maybe with more practice and techniques I can put a portfolio together just in case. I'm still kinda undecided when it comes to instructions. I'm still kind of thinking about it. I don't mind small dissections though like on my flickr with the smoke stack. Take care dude :)

Quoting Lucas Liska What did you use for the journal boxes? Is there any friction between the axles and the journals?
I used part #4070 1x1 brick with headlight. Surprisingly there's no friction between the Technic axles and journal boxes. When get to it I can post a photo on Brickshelf with one trucks dissected.
