New LEGO Australian Locomotive Instructions Available From Capital Loco Kits
Capital Loco Kits has released new instruction sets for building Victorian Railways (VR) K class 2-8-0 and N class 2-8-2 LEGO locomotives in a variety of liveries and outlines.
According to Wikipedia, the K class was a branch line steam locomotive that ran on Victorian Railways in Australia from 1922 to 1979. Even though its design and specifications were unremarkable, the K class was apparently a versatile and dependable locomotive that went on to outlast every other class of steam locomotive in regular service on the VR.
The N class according to Wikipedia was a branch line steam locomotive that ran on Victorian Railways from 1925 to 1966. A development of the successful K class 2-8-0, it was the first VR locomotive class designed for possible conversion from broad (5 ft 3 in) to standard gauge (4 ft 8+1⁄2 in).
The designer of these impressive train models has done an excellent job recreating the distinctive shape of both of these locomotives out of LEGO. In particular I am a big fan of how the “Modified Front End” looks for the models that include it! I also think that it is a nice to touch to include multiple different color/configuration options for builders to choose from when purchasing instruction sets.
Overall these Victorian Railways K and N class locomotive builds look amazing and would definitely be great additions to a LEGO City layout as well as a LEGO Train collection in general.
