Hi All!

This is my first post hope you enjoy it!

So i have been working on a TGV Atlantique SNCF, it's big, i mean it's huge, 10 studs large by 64 studs long for each car. All coaches are first class and include 34 seats.
This has been done with LDD so some parts do not have the right colors, especially for slopes so bear that in mind. It has been difficult to do the nose of the train due to LDD parts usage only!

Now THAT is a big train.  Great LDD work!  I'm always impressed when people build these massive MOC's in LDD.  That takes a lot of time and talent.  I really like the interior work and the 10-wide really allows you to capture a lot of great detail.  Excellent job and welcome to Eurobricks!

So here is more info and pics!

Dimensions of coaches 10*64 studs in order to maintain the aspect ratio 2.9*18.7 meters.

Two types of bogies:

1) Bogies between coaches:

2) Bogies between coach and the engine car:

The interior includes 3 seats in the same row and an aisle.
The seats include extra head cushion for passenger confort.
The is a over head area to put small luggages.

Things to solve or do:

-Right now my concern is that the coaches are too high due to the bogie design.

-The other problem is the little space left between the bogies and the coaches, in real lego I would probably add a little black paper and some tape :).

-The driver cabin is not designed yet

-Need a way to open the doors

-Need to add pantograph

As of right now the model without tracks is roughly 1000€ !!! :cry_sad:

WOW! Wonderful LDD Job, the size and specially the accuracy are really impressive!  :cry_happy:

I use to take SNCF trains (OMG, I can even hear those horrible three musical notes in my head!  :tongue:) and I can say it's pretty close to the original ones. Thanks for sharing!  :wink:

Beautiful!  You must have put many hours into this one.  Love the interior views.  Just for fun: did you post it up to Lego for a price quote?

Yes the price is roughly 1000€, the train (2 engine cars, and 4 coaches ) should be about 3.6meters long!! if I am not mistaken.

I will finish it then try to down size it to 8 wide...
