It almost works - if I blow with all my power into the air inlet (up left, on the side of the 'cylinder'), and at the same time give the wheel a little push, it can go two or three laps before it stops, but the sound of it is quite perfect - choo-choo-choo! Holding it vertically, with the wheel up, the gravity helps enough to make it work, but my lungs don't have the capacity to keep it rolling for any length of time. The model was first built in real life, then modeled with BlockCAD (for the studs-up parts), and finally MLCAD was used to put in the Technic pieces.


If you wonder about the 'color scheme', it is because I used exactly these colors in the real version, and wanted the rendering to look as a photo of it. These are the instructions for building the LEGO Trains Push-Along Passenger Steam Train that was released in 1980.
