Wait - i think i

Look what i found browsing the internet!

If any of you needs a translation of the written background or the things said in the movies, let me know!

That was a very clever (and lucky, I guess) find of yours, thank you for sharing this brilliant link!

It looks like a cool and interesting production, congrats to that Brickboard-Team.... *y*

And thank you for your kind offer, aber ich denke, ich pers

Welcome, Holodoc. It's good to see another StarTrek fan here.

I was going to say it was a coencidence that I was playing a Voyager episode while I browse this topic, except I'm almost always playing some Star Trek episode or movie.

Welcome! Peeron.com is a really handy way to sort/count your parts. And if you know the sets are complete you can just enter a set number to add all its parts to your collection list...

God Bless,

Nathan

Unfortunately many bricks esp. from the good-old-space sets got lost during my dark ages.

So i had to count/list them manually. :-(

By the way, does anyone know, if there is a way at peeron.com or brickset.com to show other people your listing of sets?

LUGNET offers such a "service". You have to register, though. I think it's free but they ask for a small donation, the amount you can choose yourself (last I know). Here's my list for example (not complete, a few small sets are still missing) :-)

I looked for that page. Unfortunately you will have to pay at least 10 $ to get registeres but, of course, you can pay more...

You can add individual pieces (once counted ; ) to a peeron list.

Thanks. The sets weren't all bought new, though. Many (especially the older ones) I bought of ebay or bricklink over the past two years. Most of the time in good to very good condition. It takes time to wait for the right auction and sometimes I wanted stuff really bad, but it was worth the wait *sweet*

Here's how it "evolved" ;-)

Here's a pic of my WIP display a couple of months ago. I have two more shelfs on the wall now and many still MISB sets. The layout hasn't much improved, though, I'm afraid... well, the tracks run differently now, but the rest is still a mess, even more than on the pic :-$

And yes, I love trains. My dad worked for the Austrian Railways and I grew up across my hometown's train station, which still is an important "hub" for trains going to/coming from Germany, Italy and Slovenia, so it's not just a small one. Guess that kinda "stuck" with me ;-)

Yes, over the years I think trains are the best subtheme in Town because they are most realistic and simply best designed sets. You have loads of trains, some great classic ones!

Nice story of your layout. I can imagine the difficulty of railway lines on a table but I guess someday you will have a bigger table and it'll be easier. Lego on tables is best though, especially for your back :-)

How do I get my layout on a table?

We (my son and me) prefer the floor like Hobbes does (thank you for details of your development!).

look here!
