A model of a rack railway engine from Wales.
About this creation


Snowdon Mountain Railway is a rack railway running to the top of Snowdon, highest mountain in Wales. I tried to imitate the color scheme of the line's rolling stock, and I'm fairly pleased with the way it came out.
The gear in the inset on the side of the engine rotates when the train moves, using gears that run off of the rack-and -pinion in the center of the track.







The rack mechanism on the underside of the engine.





Thanks for viewing!

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 the wagon is especially well done, I see you have train parts, but, no tracks, why did nt you use the regular tracks?
All my train parts come from one set- the Emerald Night. I don't have any tracks; besides, making my own allowed me to add gears in the center track.

Quoting Hayden . Awesome! I've actually climbed snowdOn! are yoU welsh? I love how accurate this looks!
Never been to Wales in my life, but I thought the color scheme looked neat when when I was researching for this. That's awesome that you've actually seen this place! This is what's so neat about MOCpages- that one minute after you post a model, someone can come and say that they've actually seen the train you designed from Internet pictures :D

Quoting Elvish Brick Nice work! Do you use a green screen?
Nope, just a posterboard and GIMP for clean-up. I'm glad the results are satisfactory, though ;)
