Actually, the 3.5km limit is easily reachable just by making the pyramid wider. If the base was 3.5km on a side and tapered straight to a point at 3.5km high it'd be pretty stable. And heavy. And use a lot of Lego.

Couldn't find the axles easily, this one will have to wait until I unpack the collection (after we move, hopefully in not too many months time)

yeah, GWR are quite specific and rule out basically anything using Lego Technic parts. Technic cranes often top 4m using truss frames of liftarms, but GWR doesn't allow that either (even if you use "technic brick with holes"). It's stacked bricks or nothing.

@JoshDM you mean BURPs? I was thinking either 32 long axles or the unfortunately rare 2635 crane leg parts because they're tall and pyramidal already.

comment Any way to make this setup “tighter”?
one reason for my answer was to drop a bunch of those terms in so you can search for solutions more effectively :)

@Gruber I edited it into your question but the edit hasn't been approved yet. Sorry I didn't realise that: bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=2780 and click "lots for sale"
