About: My aim is to make things that have a lot of very good features, but at the same time are small and simple, so even a novice with hardly any pieces can make the best of things! :)

Intro: K'NEX Compact Motorized Train

Here is my fifth Instructable! My new train looks realistic, is strong, compact and has an engine. The drive is from a typical steam locomotive train in the 1900s, and the engine is using direct drive. This gives the front three wheels a good amount of torque, but isn't very speedy. There is a little connector at the back for people who wish to add carriages, etc. A track can easily be made with excess K'NEX, though I did not have the parts to do this. Hope you enjoy, good luck :)
