Well this surprised us! Firstly this BNSF locomotive is the work of renowned truck builder (and TLCB Master MOCer) Dennis Glaasker aka bricksonwheels – who has taken a first foray into train building – and secondly it’s much much bigger than it looks.
Measuring almost one and half meters long and containing an estimated 20,000 bricks Dennis’ BNSF EMD SD40-2 is LEGO’s own 10133-1 mini-figure locomotive after a dose of this.
Dennis’ latest work previews a new book he is authoring with his building partner Dennis Bosman aka LegoTrucks, due in 2015 through No Starch Press. All the of the photos from this incredible build will appear in print next year, however until then you can get your fix over on Flickr – Click the link above to visit Dennis’ “bricksonwheels” photostream.
Thnx for the blog guys. I noticed the dimensions are bigger then you might expect. In fact although on smaller scale it is about as big as the 1:13 Peterbilt trucks including trailer.
The Lego set is a simular locomotive type but it is not an SD40-2 wich is a double three axle. The Lego set is a GP38 or 39 a double two axle smaller type.
