Inspired by the little shunting engine from LEGO's own City set, 4204 'The Mine'. This adorable little engine is just 5 studs wide, and can run on rails at just 4-studs wide. This engine would slip right into any LEGO City, and opens up the doorway to a whole network of 4-stud wide engines that accompany your full scale LEGO Railway!

The Little Engine, named 'Lord Basil' adorns the colours of 'The Kingdom and Cuusoo Railway', Dark Red and Pearl Gold which ooze the elegance and luxury needed to entice passengers to ride this miniature railway. It's loosely based on the iconic miniature engine 'Talyllyn', which still runs today, high in the hills of West Wales on The Talyllyn Railway, the worlds first preserved railway. A LEGO set produced to honour this fact would be a fantastic tribute to a railway that began a tradition of preserving history for generations the world over to enjoy and experience. The actual engine on which it is based is also famous, as it's the inspiration for the character of 'Skarloey' from 'Thomas & Friends", and the Little Engines series of books by Rev. W. Awdry. The carriages are also based on stock running on the Talyllyn Railway. For more information on the railway and the engine on which it's based, check out the Talyllyn Railway website.

No comments. Seems the community on ReBrick is rather sluggish.

Anyway this is awesome.
