Kairah's Knex Train V01 [T.N.K.I.T. Entry] Answered

Picture of
Here is my entry for the T.N.K.I.T. A huge K'nex locomotive. Including whistles, seats, a passengers cabin, drivers cabin and a (moving) cloud of steam coming from the top! It uses the Trekker engine and rides on the old rollercoaster track.

Really, really smashing job. By far the best entry yet! Great job on the video as well. By far your best build. My only suggestion would be to try to figure out a way to add those pistons on the wheels on the engine. Otherwise, fantastic build, great job, high fives all around! You should make an instructable too.

Kairah (author)I_am_Canadian2009-08-27

I might post instructions for a basic train, the wheels, motor part and such. But I have my doubts if anyone would make it. I didn't add any pistons because each wheel had to be able to turn left or right. If the wheels had been fixed the train could only make much larger turns (too large for my room).

Does that website ship to the USA?

Select as Best AnswerUndo Best Answer

user
Kairah (author)Shadowman392009-11-04

They say:

The shops in this website can be used to order k'nex and kid k'nex sets and parts for shipping to all countries worldwide, other than USA and Canada.

If you are based in USA or Canada, we would recommend purchasing via the k'nex shop at www.knex.com

So yea... You could try to ask them directly if you really need some special part that knex.com doesnt have. Someone (in the USA) from the knex forum ordered parts from them before.

No, only some special parts like the black rods, black connectors and some orange connectors. The rest of my knex I bought off marktplaats (dutch website).

Triple post, sorry again ;) Does it have any added functions?

Select as Best AnswerUndo Best Answer

user
Kairah (author)Skreetsha2009-08-28

The added functions are: - Smoke that moves when the train makes a turn. - Steering wheel (also rotates like the smoke) - Rear whistle - Front whistle It is very reliable now. The train used to shake a lot so I had to improve the small cars (if you call it like that) under the chassis several times. It is a modular design, you can take out the engine part from the locomotive. Or remove the small cars from beneath the loco/passenger's cabin. And it doesn't bend ;)

Sorry for the double post, but is it reliable? Does the chassis bend or break often, i mean?
