Well, I find this topic quite fascinating because it brings together two things I love - Lego trains and great design.

When I took the photos of my Railjet Moc last week, I had a nice idea for a poster inspired by my Lego train. My goal was to design a stylish "advertisement" for my Lego train which would look great hanging at the walls in a modern-styled Lego train station. Admittedly, it's not Art Deco at all but rather in a futuristic design that fits to my Railjet MOC...

PS: yes, the Railjet train service exists in reality and the travel times on the poster are the actual travel times from 2013 on but the poster and the design are purely my own work and don't have much in common with actual ads for the service.

The Metroliner is the most beautiful, It looks like you hand drew it. That is a very nice piece of work. You should make copies, I would be more than happy to buy some from you!!!!

The poster I like the most is the fourth!
You have hit the shape of the 7740 in a perfect way and with a beautiful panorama!  :thumbup:

Apart from the logo, you also need music. Que: Kraftwerk: Trans Europe Express.
They even did a logo, in the same theme as the art here. Very retro, like their videos are, coupled with electro.

The two 7740 are fantastic (ok, the mail by rail is a 7740, don't deny it  :laugh:  ) !

Maybe because I have always dreamt of owning one  :tongue:

Excellent work !

That "Not Just a Pretty Face" one cracked me up! Great job drawing these by hand; that really takes a lot of dedication  :wub:

Could you get in touch with me?  I'd like to discuss a project with you, regarding your "Metroliner" poster.

Unfortunately, the links to these pics no longer seem to work.

Any chance you could repost them? I would love to see them.

EDIT: They work now. They are Great!

Would you be interested in selling a hi res file I could print and put up in my train room?
