Certamente todos conhecem inúmero trucks que andam sobre trilhos, mas eu particularmente nunca pensei que os modelos mais antigos também andavam sobre trilhos - sempre imaginei modelos mais novos. Mas o Matt Chiles, nos presenteou com este magnífico modelo.
Aproveito para transcrever a explicação feita pelo criador Matt Chiles sobre o moc:
"This is a rail truck for my personal Lego railroad, the Horseshoe Bend Rail Road. The Horseshoe Bend Rail Road is a short line rail road that serves the Horseshoe Bend area of Klickitat County, Washingon in the period from the late 1800's to the 1930's. Its logo, the "Circle JC" brand is the brand of Horseshoe Bend Ranch, a real ranch where I work as a Ranch Manager.
Rail trucks were used by real railroads. This particular model is based on a Bachmann model of a Rio Grande Southern narrow gauge rail truck which that railroad built and used in the 1930's. The prototype for Bachman, and thus for me, is a replica of the original Rio Grande Southern rail truck which now lives at the Ridgeway Railroad Museum in Colorado. Enjoy my Lego model!"
Realmente ficou um truck diferente bonito e que chama a atenção pela originalidade do moc!
