Monorail Mk4: Police Transport

August 5th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

My fourth Monorail creation, features a single line and a detachable prison cell.  

Datasheet:

Completion date: 04/08/2011
Power: 9V (Monorail)

This simple creation was inspired by the Lego 6991 set, which features a Monorail car with a cargo unit that is detached upon reaching the end of the line. I decided to create a simple Monorail with police squad escorting a prisoner in a detachable cell.

The Monorail consists of two cars. One was modelled after a typical locomotive, and the other one just included some escort and the detachable prison cell. The cars were built in dark grey colour that would suggest a military theme. The locomotive included one set of flashing light bulbs, with one red and one blue cover, thus making it appear more police-related. The prison cell was built like a sledge that was pushed up a stand by the Monorail, which would then stop and go back without it.

It was an extremely simple creation, but I enjoyed it. The locomotive allowed me to try a couple of building techniques on a Monorail car, and the prison cell worked just like intended.

    Hamsterail. The problem is it would get derailed often depending on the food conditions near the track. 😀

    🙂 Nice!
    Only.. why does a train need flashing lights? To make other trains pull over? 😀 😀
    just joking, I like the lights very much! 🙂

    @David Luders
    I don’t know exactly but it’s certainly over 5 meters. Lucius has no interest in plastic, but he has a thing for the Lego tires. Hood thing the Monorail has none 🙂

    Wow! That is a long monorail track; how many meters is it? I like the flashing LED lights and the minifig guards.
    It’s a good thing that Lucius does not gnaw on the Lego ABS plastic! 🙂
