60197 Redesign

Two yearsafter I first built my Intercity 125-inspired reimagining of the 60197 locomotive, I’ve finally gotten round to making instructions for it. The original has a big moulded cockpit with a giant sticker on either side, so that was never going to last. I figured out a neat way to cram some Powered Up lights into the cabin which was part of the reason I put it off for so long! There’s some really cool 8+ wide mocs based on this same set but I’m still living in 6-wide train world for my sins.

A few things to note:

  • Stud.io doesn’t have the Powered Up lights or the train motor, so a dummy rear bogie is included in the instructions
  • There are photos at the end of the instructions showing how to install the electric components
  • If you own the original you’ll already have a good chunk of the inventory, but this uses a 28 stud base over the default 24

As always you can grab the pdf instructions for this model or see the inline gallery below. It’s also available via my Rebrickable. Lots of people have been asking for this one, so I you enjoy it. Cheers! 🙂
