Amazing MOCs – The Old Workhorse Traction Engine

BricksFanz doesn’t feature as many MOCs has we should but when we see we like, then we have to share it. Fellow Leicester fan Bricked1980 has created a great little build, based on the early steam engines. The Old Workhorse Traction Engine is a great little MOC, bursting with detail and not only that, the images of the set have been well presented. Along with the main engine section of old fashion vehicle, a wooden trailer has also been included, along two fun minifigures and some scenery. It’s a great little MOC and if you like it as well, then you can also vote for The Old Workhorse – Traction Engine on LEGO Ideas.

A roaring fire and a full head of steam, the old traction engine is ready for work.

Recreate classic scenes from a bygone age with this detailed LEGO model. The farmers are working in the field with their traction engine, affectionately known as “The Old Workhorse.”

The set includes a highly detailed, mini fig scale model of a steam powered traction engine, as well as a wagon, minifigures and several accessories and mini builds that can be carried in the wagon. In total 480 pieces are included.

Key features include…


  • Highly detailed and authentic model in classic green and red livery with polished brasswork.
  • A system of cogs ensures that the flywheel spins as the traction engine is pushed along.
  • Detailed cab interior complete with steering wheel and controls. The firebox door can be opened and closed to reveal the roaring fire inside (see pics).
  • The front wheel axle can be turned left and right.


  • The wagon can be connected and towed behind the traction engine.
  • Plenty of space inside to carry the logs, bushes and rocks.
  • The sides of the wagon can be opened up to provide easy access.
  • Space at the front to hold tools and mini fig accessories.


  • 2 minifigures are included along with a dog and a rat.
