As part of the reference study, observing the actual engines working is much important to understand the locomotive movements .Visiting a train stations engine Workshop relay helped me doing some detailed study as well and some sketches have been made  for  further reference.It really helped me to set the  final look and feel too.

Laser cut  MDF

Breaking down the complex engine locomotive part is a hell of hard task so i made it simplified for this sort movie as i only need few mid shots of the engine movement. So i haven’t went for much detailed study and mechanism.I found it is better to make the parts diagram as per the characters size ratio Digitally (in vector format) and get it laser cut  in MDF (Medium-density fiber board) .
