ENTERED

Hi fellow EBers I would like to present my MOC for category three of the brilliant Train Tech competition.

Zacthan Station

Enjoy. Picture is a deeplink to the gallery on Flickr, though the Brickshelf gallery will have a few more pics when moderated in the next day.

PS watch out for Arnie!

ISC, that's an awesome train station, that filled with much of your sigfig color combination. The bright green tiles are nicely integrated together with this beautiful countryside scenery. The details are well taken noted of, even the tracks itself is so realistic. Love the entire SNOT platform.

Nicely done, and good luck for this contest.  :thumbup:

Great station ISC! The colours are supurb and I really like the flower pots at the front of the station. The only thing I could suggest is perhaps making the green benches longer, but that's entirely my personal opinion. It looks great as it is. Keep it up, and good luck in the contest. :wink:

Great station with a lot of details. Like said before, the green is a good touch and make it that little bit different.  :thumbup:
One small remark/question, do you use this moc with running trains ? Because I have the feeling the platform is a bit to close to the track, and also the 2 tracks are very close.

Like I said on Flickr, this is a beautiful station!  :thumbup: The design is very good and so are the little architectural details. What makes this creation beautiful, is the perfect colour sheme. It's filled with minifigures and their luggage, it adds a nice touch. Great job!

Hi ISC,

that is one beautyfull train station.  :wub:
your brick skills are just getting better and better.
Just saw you were blogged on brothers-brick as well.
So congrats with that.  :classic:  :thumbup:

I'm not sure what to say about the creation except that it is beautyfully compact.
Ine of my only nitpicks could be the pitch of the tracks, bu that is something I vary with as well.
You could consider some more color variation for the stones inbetween the rail ties and the rail ties themselves.
Apart from that it is just great as it is.  :wub:
Kind regards,

Teddy

Thanks Teddy.
I see the point of the ballast colouring too.

What a brilliant creation! :cry_happy:
All the neat details.  :wub:  And I do like the studless platform (not SNOT).

Wow, now I´m really glad I didn´t even think of taking part in category three.

That's an awesome entry, I Scream Clone! :oh:

I really  :wub: it!

It looks absolutely realistic and the details are stunning! :oh:
The most I like the green benchs and the little street vendor car.

Very, very well done! :thumbup: :thumbup:

Thanks Holodoc, I seem to recall a nice train station by you based on bricks only from 4954, so don't be too hard on yourself  :wink:

Thanks Klaus glad you liked the street vendor, that took a little fiddling to make it stand out from the station.

I like how you included the 1x tiles along the roof ends.  It covers the roof slope jaggies and carries the accent color.
