Hi everyone,

Just for the fun, I wish to know how many trains you have?

As I'm new, I started last month a train collection, and I already own 8 PF trains. That is all 4 current trains in double.

A simple question for a complex answer  :sweet:
I own the following items:
5 trains (3 standard set and 2 MOC locomotives) from the 4,5 volts era
10 trains from the 12 volts era (the best era of ever  :blush: )
3 RC trains (2 standard set and 1 MOC steam locomotive)
2 PF trains (1 standard set and 1 MOC steam locomotive under construction  :tongue: )

Ha!  Now I don't feel so irresponsible!  I started in February and own two trains  

Emerald Night

It would probably be more but I prefer Steam Engines.  I plan on getting the current Cargo next but after that it will likely be a Steam MOC.  Looking for a good one that hasn't been done yet.

I have other cars, like two intermodal sets and a couple of the old MOT cars; I actually haven't been buying much lately - several Emerald Nights over the past couple of years, but only one Maersk so far.  I'm not enamored with the sets lately.

In addition, although you may not count these, I have gotten the latest Hogwart's Express and the TS3 Train (which I PF motorized).

Official, still built sets I have:

LEGO Express Deluxe (another copy partially parted out)
Santa Fe Super Chief - 2 stock engines, 1 MOC B unit, 6 cars plus 1 MOC
Toy Story 3 Train
7938 Passenger Train
7939 Cargo Train
Maersk Train
(Emerald Night x 2, both parted out)

MOCs, which are my bread and butter, I have

4-4-0 6-wide (probably to scale with 8-wide) 9v
4-6-0 6-wide 9v
2-4-0+0-4-2 6-wide unpowered
2-8-0 8-wide 9v
2-8-2 8-wide unpowered
4-6-2 7-wide 9v
4-6-2 8-wide PF
4-6-4 streamlined 6-wide 9v
2-8-4 8-wide Polar Express with coaches 9v
2-10-4 8-wide PF
0-8-8-0 8-wide 9v
4-4-4-4 streamlined 8-wide 9v
2-6-6-6 10-wide (to scale with 8-wide) PF
4-6-2+2-6-4 8-wide unpowered

GE 45 ton siderod switcher 8-wide unpowered
GE 70 ton switcher 8-wide unpowered
ALCO RS-2 8-wide 9v
ALCO MRS-1 8-wide unpowered

So that makes 25 trains currently built, or 27 locomotives if you break the Santa Fe Super Chief up.

I've got eighteen locomotives. I counted the Metroliner as one locomotive, of course.

Edit: Nineteen if I add the Hobby Train Set and regard it as one locomotive... plus another engine - TWENTY in this case - that I built from instructions I had found on brickshelf.com.

I've only recently got back into Lego over the past year, having dug out my childhood collection from the loft and falling in love with it again. One of the old sets was 4559 Cargo Railway and from the moment I rebuilt that I decided I had to get into Lego trains. Through a combination of eBay, Bricklink and S@H I now own:

4559 Cargo Railway
4563 Load and Haul Railroad
4558 Metroliner (and 4547 Club Car  :classic: )
4511 High Speed Train
4512 Cargo Train
7897 Passenger Train
7938 Passenger Train (with 2 extra centre carriages)
7939 Cargo Train
10194 Emerald Night
10219 Maersk Train

I also have some of the My Own Train carriages - 10013 Open Freight Wagon, 10015 Green Passenger Wagon, 10016 Tanker and 10017 Hopper Wagon - but not the locomotive (yet!).

Next on my list is another Emerald Night and another Maersk Train  :grin: . I'm also after the Santa Fe and BNSF locomotives but I'm refusing to pay silly prices...as you can probably guess I haven't had much luck there so far!

you can check mine too in the signature. then you have to add my moc/mod: one small shunter, two maersk style, one santa fe style and one small steam, plus one more maersk I'm planning to buy.
keep in mind I collect them since the blue era and mainly from 12v period.
I missed all the 9v sets when they were on shelves, but I have been able to catch the misb sfsc and the bnsf locos!
edit: oops, I forgot the hogwart express!

have a nice train lego day

great that so many folks have that many trains. Lets have even more fun:

How many MOCs do you own? Buying trains from TLC is one thing. Creating them is another. Run down Sava's list - if you'd ask me: The MOCs count x10. At least.

Running them (and then: At the same time ...) is another very fun thing. So with 20 at hand: Do you run them?

Controlling them (go speed 3 and the machine goes speed 3, regardless of external "challenges") is another fun thing.

Oh well, don't count them, give them a LEGO touch ...

But once again, I am very impressed with the numbers. Congrats to all and have fun with all these beauties!!!

Best wishes,

On the official LEGO side, I like collecting trains:
Posted Image

On the MOC side:
Narrow Gauge (Ln30)
Porter 0-4-0T Locomotive

6 wide:
2 EMD GP38 Locomotives
1 Alco S4 Locomotive
2 Gondolas
6 Boxcars
3 Covered Hoppers
7 Frontrunner Piggyback cars
2 Bulkhead Flatcars
1 Amtrak Boxcar (Ethan Allen Express livery)

But the 6-wides are slowly but surely going to be disassembled to build my 8-wide collection.

Let me answer your very interesting question with what I wrote in the Train Tech Registry thread when I introduced myself:

View PostL@go, on 04 January 2011 - 01:22 AM, said:

I never owned a Lego train set when I was little, although I was always intrigued by them. They were expensive and hard to find, so I only knew about them from the catalogues. Then, a couple of years ago I came out of my dark ages with a Café Corner, then a Market Street, then... well, you know the drill. It's all gone a bit crazy. I'm sure you recognise the story :)

Being very happy with the bigger Exclusive sets, I decided to go for the Emerald Night. It was my first train, and I liked it so much that I bought an extra wagon on eBay and then pieced together another one from BL. And then I discovered the My Own Train sets, the Super Chief, the BNSF... my wallet hurts just thinking about it.

Anyway, my train collection now contains:

- the aforementioned triple-wagon Emerald Night
- two Super Chiefs with 3x10022 and 2x10025
- a BNSF with 2x10170
- a small brown My Own Train steam engine, pulling four different-coloured versions of 10015 (green, blue, red, and black)
- a big dark grey My Own Train steam engine, pulling 10013, 10014, 10016, and 10017
- the green Brick Express GWR 5101, pulling three Blokbricks beverage wagons (red, green, and blue)
- a 10183 Hobby Train
- a 10173 Holiday Train
- and right before Christmas, I found the 7939 Cargo Train on sale. That became my first motorized train.

I've never really been interested in trains as such, though, so in this case it's a matter of Lego interest leading to interest in trains. Therefore, I haven't yet felt like MOC'ing trains. I have, however, used some custom instructions I have found here and there. So, I've added these to the collection:

- LGauge's EMD SD40-2 Diesel, external pic here
- Anthony Sava's Ten Wheeler 4-6-0, pic of the creator's original here
- Anthony Sava's amazing Hudson 4-6-4 Streamliner, complete with tender and five coaches. Looks really great - here's Mr. Sava's own rendering of the magnificent build.
- Railbricks/João Campos' CP-5600, details here
- Railbricks/Jeramy Spurgeon's Fairbanks Morse H10-44, details here
- and Railbricks/James Mathis' B Unit, details here.
Now, that was six months ago. Since then, the collection has grown to include the Maersk train and the Lime Light, my recoloured version of the Emerald Night.

And when my latest BrickLink order is delivered in a few days, I'll build a caboose for the EN, and Mr Sava's superb Polar Express train, complete with four wagons.

Then the total number, I believe, will be 18...

We're really crazy, aren't we? :D

My collection is quite small:

4537 Octan Twin Tank
4563 Load and Haul Railroad
7939 Octan Tanker Car Only

And a few MOCs:

EMD SW1500 (UP Livery)
TTX Frontrunner Piggyback Car
10-Wide Container Car (Based on the one from 7939)

I hope to build/obtain more TTX intermodal cars along with the Maersk Train and a full 7939 Cargo Train set in the near future.  :grin:
