MOC: Small train yard display
Posted 15 September 2010 - 10:50 AM
Part of a train yard with some of my Swedish style MOC vehicles and locomotives.
It’s my contribution to a temporary display, for a Lego event, in a Stockholm technical museum.
I know the landscaping is extremely poor, but it’ll do the job since a train yard is
typically “flat”, and the emphasis should be on vehicles rather than surroundings.
Anyhow I just wanted to share this picture with you.
Also, I'm sorry about picture size being slightly “heavy”, but when making it smaller it
became super blurry.

From what you wrote, I suppose you won't make any more changes to the landscaping, right? Because I was thinking you may want to add supports for overhead lines for the track with electric loco, one or two floodlights (as train yards tend to operate 24h) and some random garbage, old locomotive parts etc. (at least in Germany, train yards always look rather run down)...

My thoughts exactly, word by word. The display is really eye-capturing for some reason and it could easily be a picture for an official LEGO catalogue if these were official sets.
Excellent work Selander!

Yes, all vehicles and locomotives are my own designs. Design and colours refelect those of the originals (IRL) but of course
with adaptations to what is possible to achieve in minifig scale.
More pictures can be found in my flickr or brickshelf accounts - see links below, I also encl one picture of Excavator as you asked
partically for that design.
