New 12v train?
Posted 29 June 2009 - 12:23 AM
Hello fellow train fans.
Recently I finished collecting all the grey era 12v trains and wagons I wanted. How can I add more authentic Lego trains to my collection I thought? So I looked back through the early catalogues and found these two sets...
And I wondered what these sets would have looked like if they had been released in 1982. Perhaps like this?
Now I have another passenger train to run alongside my 7740!
Please excuse the poor photography and the distracting background

Also, welcome to Eurobricks! Why not post an introduction?

And I would like to see more of your collection. I guess you have more trains, then only this one .

There's one problem though: Something important is missing... the conducting rails

I will take some photos of my collection the next time I have a chance to get the layout setup (which doesn't happen as often as I'd like )
In the meantime I am working on a 12v grey era version of this set:
As soon as the doors arrive and the model is complete I will take some photos and post them here.
And as for the conducting rails! All my straight pieces are used in my layout. Lets just say that my display track is unpowered and this train was shunted into place by a diesel loco, perhaps 7760?

With the vast array of parts we have today, combined with more advanced building techniques, it's easy to get carried away when building a tribute model like this one. You've kept it simple, which really helps when building these.
So yeah, this is a great, and nostalgic, MOC. Already looking forward to the next locomotive!
