Swedish Class B 4-6-0 Revisited
About this creation
Swedish State Railways or Statens Järnvägar (SJ) 'B' Class 4-6-0



The History:
Number one on my favorite steam locomotive list these engines are just so darn handsome. These hard working locomotives were first introduced to Swedish State Railways in 1909 and drew it's inspiration from the Prussian State Railways P8 4-6-0's from 1906. They have some unusual features not normally seen on most steam locomotives such as the streamlined wind cutter cab, streamlined smokebox, and strange tender design. They proved to be an excellent operator for all duties and pulled both passenger and freight trains in Sweden. They were built up until 1920 with a total of 99 locomotives built.

The MOC:
This isn't the first time I've modeled this locomotive from LEGO. My first attempt was in about 2005, however due to the limited bricks I had and parts that I'd have to wait a few more years for LEGO to release, it was severely lacking. It was done from memory, didn't have the right cab shape, boiler was too small and other features too blocky.
This time I revisited the locomotive and built it first on LDD to see what I needed for parts. This time I remembered to include the wind cutter cab (hard thing to model in LEGO) and the larger drivers and boiler. Also unlike my earlier MOCs this time my engine is able to navigate LEGO curved track and is also motorized! But that's not all, it actually has SOUND installed!

























I used a sound card from one of my G scale model trains and installed it in the tender. When the train starts moving it sounds the whistle and increased the chuff rate as the power increases. A LEGO wire clips onto the forward motor and goes straight into the card with no soldering necessary. These sound cards can be adjusted to fit your particular locomotive by adjusting a series of screw terminals on the chip itself. These sound cards are available from www.mylocosound.com

Quoting William Coleman This is a amazing moc i also am a fan of the B class beautiful loco wish i could build one or even find a HO model of one. There is a B class not far from me No.1313 but it is a bit of a mess at the moment and needs a overhaul.
It's indeed a beautiful locomotive. I've seen HO scale models of it but they're insanely expensive. You should give it a try and build it too.

Quoting Hunter Dobbs You deserve a medal for the amount of detail you put in that locomotive. Outstanding work.
Thank ya kindly, Hunter. :)

Quoting Trevor Young Exactly how though? Lego doesnt really stand up well to heat....
Oh well I'm not really sure. Even with my large scale trains I don't even use the smoke generators they're not very realistic IMO. I'm fairly certain that if you have enough space between the generator and the LEGO bricks you shouldn't have a problem. I have this link for smoke generators in detail. Maybe it can help. http://girr.org/girr/tips/tips3/smoke_tips.html

Quoting Trevor Young Hey, Random question, Do you think it would be possible to put a smoke unit in a Lego train? I am currently making a new locomotive and I kinda wanted to add something interesting.
Why yes it is. Take a look at this http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=96330 Also on bigbenbricks gallery there's a German BR03 with a smoke unit installed. I don't know where to find more pics though.

Yeah a bit too complicated for me too. I guess its just silent Locos for me! Oh My Loco is up now if you want to see.

Quoting Trevor Young Hey Do you think those sound cards could be made to work with PF? I was never old enough to buy Lego on my own before they discontinued 9V. :(
I haven't tried it with my PF motor. These cards work with all types of model train control but I'm not too tech savvy to hook up my PF motor and receiver to the card I have. There's a schematic here for RC http://mylocosound.com/images/wiring-diagram---rcs-beltrol0.jpg It's too complex for me.

Quoting Trevor Young Yeah Oddly enough I went to Walmart today! And I do need a new printer x.x But I guess I can do my best with decals.
If you want to know what exactly I use it's Avery brand print to edge square labels. It takes a little fiddling to get the decal to fit into the label.

Quoting Trevor Young Oh and a question. How do you make your decals? They always look so good.
Thank you, Trevor. I look forward to seeing your new locomotive. For my decals I used just MS Paint and used an inkjet printer onto sticker paper from Walmart. The sound is a bit rough because of the very small amount of current flowing through the track but the more practice I'll be able to get smoother sound in future engines.

Amazing, I have been waiting for this for a while. Very interesting locomotive. Im amazed you included sound as well. Maybe tomorrow I will upload a small Loco I recently built. (I still need decals, "The most enjoyable part" x.x) I still like your newest Loco. I actually have never seen anything like this. I like how the shields were used on the front.
