Build Notes

Over the years LEGO® has added and changed its parts inventory and whenever possible I try to provide alternate solutions for these parts below. I use Rebrickable for my link references since it has the most current database of LEGO® parts and it links to a variety of sites for purchasing like BrickLink, BrickOwl and more.

TRAIN Axle and Wheel Part Options

The axle and wheels are built in such a way that your can use both the new and legacy parts. The part used in the file is Part #: 2878c01 – an alternate option is to use the New Axle and Wheels separately:

Train Buffer Beam Options

There are 3 options for the Train Buffer Beam – the part used in the file is Part #: 64424c01– you can use any of the following 3 train buffers.
