  2. Sorry for the rebumping, but i added a Video of the train moving
  3. Here there is some of the long trains showed in the past ALEBRICKS 2016 in Madrid, Moc replicas of spanish trains by Aitoruco and I (MTRkustoms)
  4. thanks all for the nice replies, xboxtravis7992, I ammend the inital post, 151 is the french and spanish notation (only indicates the axles) according to Whyte is a 2-10-2 *thomas* Not yet, i have no space to make a good full composition picture, next week I will be in ALEBRICKS2016 event, so I will make some pictures and videos of this full MOC Ashi Vakoinen, yeah driver cabin need more details and will be refurbished in a future, the real problem is to get a picture of the real one (only one survived and is in a museum very far from me), tiny parts are not a problem "purist dont look the spoiler"
  5. Dear All, From the MTRkustoms train Factory i have the pleasure to announce my latest MOC, After some Spanish Train MOCs I wanted to make a Steam Locomotive, and I Started with the biggest and more powerful Spanish Steam, the “Santa Fe” 151 (French/Spanish) 2-10-2 (Whyte) This locomotive was able to pull a 450 tons train at 30km/h and a slope of 20mils The most difficult challenge was create a MOC that can run in R104 Blastemtrack, and R40 curves. To get the power I use a 9v dummy motor to pick up energy and 2 L PF Motors inside the boiler attached to the 9v pickup, is not a fast MOC, but is a very powerful Locomotive DIMENSIONS Locomotive length: 45 studs Tender length: 25 studs Total length: 70 studs Height: 9 bricks 7 wide Details To be a complete MOC I made some type of cars, 1 Closed boxcar, 5 open coal cars, and one caboose car. Details These 2 axle wagons have a flex hose coupling to be connected and allow Little turn of the axles. Also the coal wagons have an aperture system for the next project. All the pictures in Flickr Album And a little Video: Enjoy it
  6. Hi to all EB users, I have the pleasure to present the first collaboration AITORUCO/MTRkustoms We are a spanish train builders and the better way to make a collaborative MOC is to design and build a Ghostbuster Headquarter . This Headquarter is completed with the Ecto-1 with custom leds of MTRkustoms and the 8w American cars of AITORUCO There is no need to talk about this building so lets see the pictures, so..... who you gonna call? More Pictures and all full resolution pics here
  7. zephyr1934, marook, Stefaneris, dr_spock, thx for the kind words, You can see more Train MOCs from me here http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=102444 http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=102317 http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=86711 http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=84794 http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=83889 Yeah its a real pity not have 5/7 studs wide windscreens Spanish Lego world it is a vandal world One side is clean and one with grafitti so 2 choices are possible Just printed transparent decals (I am not crazy to paint the Moc )
  8. Dear all EB users, From MTRkustoms Railworks we have the honor of presenting the RENFE 446 Cercanias Electric units, This train has an import significant for me as is the train where i pass a lot of time in my life in my daily travel to work. 446 series was a specially designed train to provide a proximity service in the early 80s and the previous series, the 440s were insufficient for the huge amount of passengers in the big cities of Spain. This units have 2400kW of power and a maximum speed of 100km/h. both side driving units and 3 pairs of doors in each car MODEL SPECS Lenght: 180 studs / 144cm Wide: 7 wide Height: 11 bricks (13 bricks with raised phantograph) Weight: 2200g Others: Turns in R40 but looks awful, much better in R104 or smooth curves. Comparison with real model More pictures Chassis and 9v-PF connection (this model have a 9v motor connected to a PF motor in order to take current from 9v rails and increase the power and traction with no more expensive 9v motors) This train in 90s was frequently vandalized, so this is my personal tribute with a full graffiti side More pics and full resolution pics in Flickr Album Enjoy it
  9. Wow, very nice MOC MTM, I like all the detailing that you put on it, I never seen the original, but according to the pics is a very strange engine and you detailed it perfectly the shapes and details, congrats.
  10. Wow, very nice MOC Daedalus304 very nice steamer and very clever solutions in the pistons and rods to able the movement in all degrees. Congrats
  11. Wow, A pretty amazing train LEGO Train 12 Volt I love the detailling and the huge vagons. always a pleasure see your mocs
  12. Hi to all, From the MTRkustoms factory we have the pleasure to present the ARDUINO AUTOMATED LEGO RAILCAR Here you can see the Railcar in detail This use modification pass the following phases PF --> 9v --> Arduino Control The original idea was very simple, have an autonomous and continuous Railcar in open circuits. I based the function in a great cheap invent, The Arduino Board, this small, easy programming and low cost, gives me the chance to make it real with a cost below 10€, including a PWM motor controller L298N Only 1 9v cable was "damaged" to convert its connection. The cycle work is very simple, Railcar goes from end to end regulated by the L298N with a PWM velocity. When the Railcar hit the final of the track (switch detection) stops 5sec and go to the other end and stops 10sec (and able to the passengers to go down) Time, velocity and stops time can be easy fixed by the programming. Some pictures of the system Stop No.1 Stop No.2 Switch Detail Cable connection boxes To hide the Arduino board and the L298N I made a modern prefabricated transformation Station Detail of the track connection Interior of the Transformation station All Full resolution pictures here A little video Enjoy it
  13. Hi to all, I have the pleasure to present 3 of my latest MOCs. 3 iconic building of Madrid. ​TORRESPAÑA (PIRULI) Torrespaña (literally "Spain Tower") is a 231 m (757.87 ft) steel-and-concrete television tower located in Madrid, Spain. National terrestrial television channels RTVE, Telecinco andAntena 3, as well as the autonomic channel Telemadrid, along with a few radio stations, broadcast from the tower. The tower was built in 1982, commemorating the FIFA World Cup celebrated in Spain that year. The building was administered by RTVE until 1989, when control over radio and television emissions in Spanish territory was given to Retevisión. It is not open for tourists. The Torrespaña tower is generally known in Madrid as the "Pirulí", given the similarity between the tower and a particular type of lollipop of conical shape very popular in Spain in the eighties. It is located in a depression, next to the M30 highway. Most of central Madrid lies to the W and NW. According to Google Earth, the terrain altitude at the site is 660 m (2,170 ft) whereas about 1 km (3,280.8 ft) to the NW it is about 700 m (2,296.6 ft) and rises to 720 m (2,360 ft) even further north. Add about 20–30 m (66–98 ft) height for the average building and the base of the tower is about 60 to 90 m (200 to 300 ft) below the rooftops in that area. The top of the tower is directly visible from most rooftops of Madrid, but it initially was thought and built to enhance television coverage in Southern Madrid. All pictures in full resolution TORRE PICASSO Torre Picasso (Picasso Tower) is a skyscraper in Madrid, Spain designed by Minoru Yamasaki. From 1988 until 2007 it was the tallest building in Madrid, measuring 515 ft (157 m) and with 43 floors. Torre Picasso is located next to the Pablo Picasso Square, within the commercial complex AZCA along the Paseo de la Castellana. At its opening in 1988, Torre Picasso was surpassing the elder office tower Torre de Madrid. However, it was not Madrid's tallest building, as the television tower Torrespañacompleted in 1982, was higher with its 231 m (757.87 ft). Notable surrounding skyscrapers are Torre Europa, Banco de Bilbao Tower and Windsor Tower, now demolished after a fire. The Torre Picasso was Spain's tallest building until 2001,when it was overtaken by the Gran Hotel Bali in Benidorm, Alicante,the Torre Espacio in 2007,and Torre Caja Madrid, Torre de Cristal and Torre Sacyr Vallehermoso since 2009. All pictures in full resolution ATOCHA STATION Madrid Atocha (Spanish: Estación de Madrid Atocha, also named Madrid Puerta de Atocha) is the largest railway station in Madrid. It is the primary station serving commuter trains (Cercanías), intercity and regional trains from the south, and the AVE high speed trains from Barcelona (Catalonia), Zaragoza (Aragon), Seville (Andalusia) and Valencia(Levante Region). These train services are run by the Spanish national rail company, Renfe. The station is in the Atocha neighborhood of the district of Arganzuela. The original façade faces the Plaza del Emperador Carlos V, a site at which a variety of streets converge, including the Calle de Atocha, Paseo del Prado, Paseo de la Infanta Isabel, Avenida de la Ciudad de Barcelona, Calle de Méndez Álvaro, Paseo de las Delicias, Paseo de Santa María de la Cabeza, and Ronda de Atocha. The Atocha station is really a railway complex, formed by the Madrid Atocha Cercanías and Madrid Puerta de Atocha stations of the Spanish national railways and the Atocha Renfe station of the Madrid underground. At this site, Madrid's first railway station was inaugurated on 9 February 1851 under the name Estación de Mediodía (Atocha-Mediodía is now the name of an area of the Arganzuela district, and means south in old Spanish). After the building was largely destroyed by fire, it was rebuilt and reopened in 1892. The architect for the replacement, in a wrought ironrenewal style was Alberto de Palacio Elissagne, who collaborated with Gustave Eiffel. Engineer Henry Saint James also took part in the project. The name Atocha has become attached to the station because of the nearby basilica dedicated to Our Lady of Atocha. The train platforms were partly covered by a roof in the form of inverted hull with a height of approximately 27 meters and length of 157 meters. The steel and glass roof spreads between two brick flanking buildings. This complex of railway tracks expanded through the years. In 1985, a project of complete remodeling began, based on designs byRafael Moneo. In 1992, the original building was taken out of service as a terminal, and converted into a concourse with shops, cafés, and a nightclub. Like the Orsay Museum in Paris, the concourse has been given a new function, this time a stunning 4,000 m2(43,056 sq ft) covered tropical garden. A modern terminal was also designed by Moneo, and built in adjacent land to serve both the new AVE trains and local commuter lines. The main lines end in the new terminal; commuter train platforms are located underground, at the ingress to a rail tunnel extending northward under the Paseo de la Castellana. The station is served by two Madrid Metro stations, Atocha and Atocha Renfe. The latter was added when the new terminal building was constructed and is directly linked to the railway station.

  14. Very nice 7wider, Had you try to put instead of the 2 1 stud cheeses and the black piece (i did not remember the name) 2 stud cheeses attached to a Brick modified with one stud to supress the half plate separation and be able to put the boguies plates at the same level of the cab?
  15. Wow Sergio, an amazing comboio, very nice, long and detailed, the "magic rubber" is a perfect way to "long" 2 axles carriages get into the extra-narrow lego curves. Congrats,
