New version of my favorite BR 10 steam locomotive. In comparison my first version from 2001 looks rather bulky.

I do not guarantee the correctness of the parts lists!
Note: buying elements:
There is no one Bricklink shop that offers all the parts you need. It will definitely be necessary to place multiple orders from multiple shops. Possible sources of supply:
- Order individual parts directly from LEGO shop.lego.com/de-DE/Pick-a-Brick
- Dealer network with an English interface and the option to create a “wanted list” bricklink.com
- Dealer association with German interface brickscout.com
- The large and small locomotive wheels are not from LEGO but Big Ben Bricks from the USA.
- Small Bluetooth hub and mini motor from Circuitcubes.com from the USA.
For further information on the procurement of individual elements see Material Procurement.
Building and selling my models
My building instructions are available for free. Building these models is only allowed for personal use. Building these models with the purpose of selling them and make your own profit is prohibited.
Bricks-on-Rails.de offers a driving rod set for the BR 10 in his online shop.
My model of the BR 10 steam locomotive uses four Technic, Plate 1 x 8 with Toothed Ends (4442) in red. This element is currently not available and was never used in an official LEGO set.
The illustration shows an alternative how pistons and rods can be build. The following red elements are required:
Make sure the "Technic, Axle and Pin Connector Toggle Joint Smooth" is in the correct orientation.
Make sure that you use a 90° off-set for drive wheels.
My new version has moving pistons and rods. They are driven by BBB train wheels size "XL".
The Power Functions receiver and battery box is hidden in the tender. 2 Power Functions train motors underneath the tender pushes the locomotive forward.
