Last year I created Stockholm Metro in Lego. Please take a look here and here.

One year later it's now time for a come back on this theme. This time I have built the station 'Medborgarplatsen', which lies in the city centre of Stockholm (capital of Sweden  :wink: )


You are able to see reference pictures at the end of my post. Hope you like it!  :wink:

Now, follow me down the escalator to the underground!  :classic:

The dark blue pillars with the brightly coloured lines are probably the detail that characterize the station most.

There's always scary people in the Metro  :look:  :oh3:

The escalator is probably the detail I am most satisfied with  :wink: The steps consist of brick 1x2, with grill and tile 1x2, with grille - both in metallic silver   :cry_happy:

Are you able to identify the two differences between the Metro used now and the one used in my last Metro-creation?

The station is modular.

...And it's possible to connect this station to the laste Metro-MOC I created:

Great work, Skrytsson.

You've captured the feel of the real station very well.

Top job.

Mind blowing AWESOME 'Skrytsson', the train is cool, but it's the station and all the realistic detailing....the tiger  :wub: every bit of it....the posters are just too much. Great to see some else who likes creating their own signs. :thumbup:
Brick On 'Skrytsson' ! :grin:

Great job. I've been to Stockholm, but didn't ride the Metro - but from the pictures it's very clear that you've done a great job with recreating the original. I like the posters, they're very recognisable for a fellow Scandinavian :)

And that escalator really is fantastic - it looks just like the real thing. You have good reason to be happy with that!

I love subway stations for some reason, and you've really done a great job recreating one.

Wow it’s perfect!
The escalator is the best I’ve ever seen in lego form.
Hope to see, soon or later, the real one in Stockholm..

Very nice.
Those escalators are perfect! Also the dustbins are great, simple but effective.
I must only say that I like the old metro better than the old one. The windows may be more accurate on the new one, but somehow they don't look that good.

I'm standing at the platform of Medborgarplatsen right now, and I can confirm that your build is very accurate!  :classic:
I love the use of colors, especially the mix of yellow on the walls.
Great job! :thumbup:

Great MOC! Fantastic detail. Would you be willing to make the Lego style ads you used available. They are pretty amazing.

Beautiful work there, I love the myriad of colours and textures that you have been able to work into this model, the level of detail is fantastic.

Brilliant work; the escalators are fantastic.

Your use of the colours is so realistic

It would be great to see the platform a bit longer so you could put in more details.

You are right; the bloke near the rubbish bin does look scary.  :wacko:

Hi Skrytsson.  I've been meaning to comment about this beautiful subway terminal for some time but I wanted to wait until I could draw some additional attention to it.  

I would so love to see LEGO design and offer a detailed set like this.

Front-paged! :thumbup:
