My first real MOC, I suppose. A Duplo Steam Train using a rainbow of colors.
About this creation
This is an old creation of mine from 2006. Actually it is the first large scale creation I made (using all the Lego bricks I owned at the time, if you include the ones I loaded up in the box-car). It could really have used some more blacks and grays, but they were pretty scarce before the Castle sets came out. I have toyed with the idea of rebuilding it with better colors, but the rainbow colors here seem to have a bit of a whimsical effect.




I couldn't find the original image I used to base the train on, but it was similar this one.


It was just the right size for my youngest to be the driver.


It was also just the right size for the older two to have a lot of fun with.

Thank you all for the kind words. It's nice to have a place to share these builds with people that enjoy both the finished works and the process that goes into it.

You have done everything perfect here. What an absolutely fantastic way to engage the kids. And to look at its ultimate demise with a proud eye is a level of wonder for all of us. It's all about having fun. It appears that you had fun building it, it looks like the kids had fun riding in it, and it looks like everyone had fun destroying it. It's perfect play. Thank you!

What a great build. First of all its always difficult working with the color scheme of yours without making it look like a rainbow build. You nailed it. Second of all its duplos. Your baby can fit in it, and its very well excecuted. I love it :)

I love this big, colourful train. Although you've used lots of colours, they've been kept in neat blocks and so the MOC looks good. I like how a human driver can fit inside: what fun!

Quite the impressive build! The size itself as well as the colors really adds to the playability. Superb MOC. -LB Senior
