  1. Entry B - 3 points
  2. I have bought a whole box - therefore I have 2 complete sets for sale. I paid €400 for the whole box - and yes, it is expensive.... But I would like to sell the 2 remaining sets for €130 each. All the bags are opened for verification and packed again in zip locks bags. I will ship it with track and trace - and I do not accept payment from PayPal - only IBAN. Are you interested - feel free to let me know. If not interested - fine. I know they are expensive. But we share the costs.... Regards Henrik
  3. Hi Elroy Sorry to hear that - I would also like to subscribe to a LEGO train magazine.... And I would to contribute with articles as I have done a couple of times.. (But not enough I can read..,). Henrik
  4. Thanks - I am crossing my fingers and hope for a lot of good luck - it will be needed.... Please vote - let us show LEGO that there are train fans out there and we want TRAINS - lots of trains... Henrik
  5. As a huge fan of trains I have been waiting for a new train for a very long time... Hope is still present. Why don't we tell LEGO that we will have a new train. There is several good projects on LEGO Ideas (including mine..) https://ideas.lego.com/projects/102291 And https://ideas.lego.com/projects/121370 Merry Christmas to everyone. Henrik
  6. The plan is to do it in july 2017 - but we are dependable on many things. The next step is to invite all the LUGs in the World to the trainbulk. It Will happen before x-mas. Henrik
  7. You Can... Start with spreading the rumours about this Crazy danes and his project.... Info Will be emailed out before X-mas.. Regards Henrik
  8. It is not possible for me to express my deepest feelings for all the supporters. 1.000 supporters - wow. Thank you all. I have made a agreement with LEGO - we are gonna use 330.000 tracks for the record. It is not possible for us to pay for the that. Therefore we are allowed to invite all recognized members of an official LUG to participate in a TRACKBULK - you will be able - through your LUG - to buy tracks at a very special price. All the tracks will be delivered to me, used for the record attempt, then packed and shipped out to all the recognized LUGs. Hope you still will be supporting this crazy project - but if someone can do this... is it us. But there is still a long way to father 10.000 supporters.... So Keep on supporting the project. Thanks everybody. Henrik
  9. It was used to power the train wagons when no locomotive was attached. Was only used when parked. Hope this answer your questions. We have just passed 1.000 supporters - this is my message to all on LEGO Ideas: It is not possible for me to express my deepest feelings for all the supporters. 1.000 supporters - wow. Thank you all.

  10. We proudly present: 4 in 1 wagons/carriages for the DB 103 Class locomotive If the project becomes an official LEGO Ideas set, you can choose to build each of 1 of the 4 different wagons/carriages you would build. If you want to have all 4 running on your train tracks on the same time - you must buy 4 boxes. You can build: - 2 different passenger wagons/carriages - 1 restaurant wagon/carriage - 'Speisewagen' - 1 panorama wagon/carriage See all the details in the pictures. And please remember to take a closer look at the locomotivehttps://ideas.lego.com/projects/102291 - a suitable locomotive for pulling these wagons/carriages. The iconic DB Class 103 was the reference to one of the most beloved LEGO trains sets 7740. Our goal is to have this new version become a real LEGO product, but it is by far the only goal of this project. In 2013 the RLUG Danish ”Byggepladen” achieved a Guinness World Record for longest plastic toy train track. 4,000.25 meters (13,124 ft 2 in) all done in old blue LEGO train tracks. Danish Lego enthusiast Henrik Ludvigsen was the man behind the project, and now he and Byggepladen is going to go even further. Actually 10x further. 42,195 meters (138435 ft 15/32 inches) = 329,718 LEGO train tracks The iconic marathon distance has been covered by athletes all over the world, but to build the tracks out of LEGO train tracks is a daunting task. The first hurdle is the 329,718 LEGO tracks that are needed, and this is where you can help by supporting the DB Class 103 project. If the DB Class 103 project reaches 10,000 supports and becomes a LEGO Ideas model, the 1% of the total net sales will be used to purchase the LEGO tracks and make this record become a reality. If the project never becomes a reality the 1% will be donated to UNICEF. We are planning to make the new Guinness World Record in the summer 2017. The wagons/carriages is designed by Lars Mogensen - a member of the Danish RLUG "Byggepladen". The wagons/carriages are build using about 600 LEGO bricks.
  11. When I Was 6-7 years old I used to get up very early in the morning - especially the weekends. My mom and dad Was not very excited about that, so I Got an extra room in the basement. In this room I had my LEGO track setup. My first locomotive Was the 133 - since then I have been hooked on LEGO trains. My collection is now almost 100% complete. I used to play with the old blue tracks ... Since my childhood I have dreamed of appearing in the Guinness Book of Records. This dream Was forunded one very early saturday morning... The dream became a reality on the 13-05-2013 where the Danish RLUG and myself made a track measuring 4000,25 meters - entirely made of my collection of the old blue tracks..... Now I am planning a new track measuring 42195 meters (the same distance as a marathon run...). But I am still hooked on trains and buy one or two everytime a new set is released. Henrik
  12. I do not where They come from - They have all the marks from the original moulding machines in Billund. LEGO have looked at Them and have confirmed they are made at the LEGO factory..... Henrik Yes, they are all mine and part of my large collection of train and tracks... I Think I am 97 % complete of everything related to trains..... Henrik
  13. I have a lot of the old blue tracks ... In my collection I also have some other colours Henrik
  14. Disappointed.... Would love to extend my Winter Village with a new set... Henrik
