The LEGO train locomotive The Emerald Night (set 10194), which came out in at the end of 2011, is arguably one of the finest locomotives that LEGO has produced. It is not without its flaws… but the AFOL community has worked hard on modification, which can easily be found. The Emerald Night is based on the British locomotive, the Flying Scotsman, which dates back to February 1923.
Some statistics on Mike’s train:
– One locomotive (though he has two more spares), two tenders, and 13 rolling stock.
– Total length: 153 inches (12’ 9” ) or 3.88 meters (388cm)
– Total weight of train, tenders, and carriages: 13.45 lbs or 6.10 kgs.
As part of the Calgary LEGO Train Club, this is a significant crowd pleaser when it is operating on a large track at one of our shows. Thanks Mike!
