7 Wide guides and ideas
Posted 15 February 2010 - 12:14 PM
Yep still rather new to 7 wide concept..
Where can I find instructions/guides to various designs done in 7 wide, looking for ideas to build my own engines and rolling stock, but with my 'limited' range of bricks.
(My imagination is still pretty dead and needs some help)
Tried search here but it does not let you search when you got less then 3 characters in one of the search parts and 7 is only 1 character !
Hope there is some help out there.

The only really hard bit I found unique to 7 wide design was attaching wheels which was disscussed HERE
Other than that I found it really helpful to look on the Flickr train groups and Brickshelf, and try and work out how the models were built. By the way there isn't really much difference between 6,7 and 8 wide as far as design goes, so you can mostly convert a design from one to the others. Some of my favorites are Monteur puntcom ulimy Flickr Lego Trains Pool

Its working quite well, along with that railbricks bogie with gearing.
The more I look at the size my engine and the need to be to hold the battery box and motor, a Santa Fe variation may have to be the right way, aleady about the right length scaled up.
Will see how things work out and maybe get more pics

The solution for the old battery looks rather good
